Default FS5R30A front cover gasket question?? Sealant needed?

I am put a new seal in the front of a 5 speed FS5R30A transmission, and have a question about the different style gasket now used for the cover.

The original gasket was paper. The replacement gasket, 32112-05u12, is steel coated with a thin gray material on both sides. Borrowed picture, thanks:

The new gasket has a raised ridge or channel, around the entire perimeter.

I can't find any instructions which would indicate sealant, however. I read that this transmission was used as late as some models of Xterra. I figured if true, an Xterra manual would be a place to look since it would have used any later revised part designs.

Gasket? Mine has a metal plate with a rubber ridge on it and a plate bonded with an RTV at the bottom. It was all factory with sharp edges and clean corners.

The rebuild kit I used for the FS5W71C came with a paper gasket. I painted it with #3 aviation sealant before I put the throwout cover back on.
