What do you mean by this? The top piece of the manifold bolts to the head and I took that off and it had weird kinda tear drop shaped gaskets that were NOT these. They were between the intake manifold and the head.

I also checked where the 4 black couplers connect the top of the intake manifold to the bottom of it and found no gaskets there, just the couplers and clamps.

Perhaps these 4 circle gaskets go further down in the boxy part of the manifold? I don't know...
