K&N filter question

When I replaced the stock filter with a K&N drop in, it didn't come with a peel off seal housing like it did for my eclipse ... is this normal? the only part that came in the box was the filter itself ...

maybe I didn't explain it well enough ... the filter was in a wrapper which had not been opened but there wasn't a rubber gasket in the box ... for my eclipse, the box contained a rubber gasket that had an adhesive that kept the gasket sealed to the filter housing ... and then the filter was placed on top of the gasket ...
Did your focus filters have this feature?

Micro ... so if I understand you, your filter did not come with a seperate gasket that you had to apply? I hate to be anal but I just want to make sure I'm not missing a necessary part ....
