Why no gasket

OK Put me out of my misery.  Why oh why is there no gasket between the output shaft flange and the mating surface of the differential.  I am renewing the output seal but surely oil can weep between the bearing outer race and leak out.  Am I missing something.  I will of course put some Hylomar on the surface as I have been advised to by a very learned member of the club, but why no gasket from new?

Its not shown on any parts listing that I can see

I have seen these with a paper joint, its often trying to escape with edges showing beyond the hsg.

Canley list a diff joint kit    diffset1   but cant break it down to whats included

Im sure some sealant is desirable ,  I use loctite  573 /574  for reliable sealing   magic stuff
