The so-called adverbs of frequency are usually placed as follows:
1. Before the main verb if it is in the present or past tense:
I almost hurt my leg. He seldom smiles.
2. After the present and past tense forms of to be:
He is always late.
3. After the defective/modal auxiliaries (can, could; will, would; shall, should; may, might; must; ought):
He would never have done it. He may always have known it.
4. After the perfect auxiliaries (have, has; had):
He has never been told the truth. They had often said something.
5. After not: They do not/don't always know the right answer.
I have not/haven't always liked her.

Does he always know the right answer?

should have been found - four verbs > should always have been found; should usually have been found; ...
