Should dryer vent hose be half embedded in drywall?

We are at the tail end of a laundry room renovation that included installing drywall over cement walls. Our contractor swears having half the dryer’s vent opening and hose embedded in drywall is perfectly fine. We disagree. Should we fight for him to enclose the vent and hose in a recessed dryer vent box or trust his craftsmanship? Thank you!
