Pac-Fab multi function valve question.

Ok Here is what I have a Pac-Fab 2 inch inlet valve the one that has filter,backwash,recirulate,rinse,waste, and closed it has 5 tubes going into it. Last year I replaced the spider gasket and noticed it was glued in,The bottom housing has a groove to match with the gasket.(I had a bear getting the old one out).
I put the new one in with no sealant last week I noticed water gushing out into the street from the drain,I shut it down and checked that gasket it was ok but it would not stop leaking so I went and bought some marine sealant/adheasve and that fixed it.
Is this gasket glued down from the factory?

Yes, and when it is replaced it is generally glued back down.
