Default Vts rocker gasket

Just starting to clean everything after braking down this engine, are the two cam covers just sealed with silicon or are they a rubber gasket? There's not much left to really tell me.

the original metal covers have a bonded silicon type seal which is not replaceable.

the later JP4 tupe plastic covers are much prefered as they have a replaceable rubber seal, you must use the appropriate screws, buy new ones from a dealer if you dont manage to get them with the covers.
need a part number? and will sort you out.
