Default Hella 550 lens/housing not sealing well

So I am putting some hella 550 fog lights on my truck and I noticed when assembling them that the plastic back housing and the lens itself don't really meet up very tightly. It seems like water could get in there really easily. Is there supposed to be a rubber seal or gasket or something that mine are missing? They took the time to include a rubber seal for the back of the housing to seal up where the wires come out, but the rim of the lens isn't really sealed at all. Seems odd to me.

You had to assemble them? Mine were good-to-go, right out of the box.
