Are electrical junction boxes required by code (remodel)?

My electrician wired up a few spots for our bathroom vanity lights, but there are no junction boxes. Just plain wires coming out of the wall. I thought junction boxes are a must and is used to keep the connected wires in a fire proof container and also used to support the light fixture it may be attached to. So, are junction boxes required by code in the CA Bay Area?

Thanks,
Gary
