Valve Cover Gasket

I have a leaking valve covergasket 126k on a 2000 323 ci m52.

When I went to replace it the new gasket from the dealer does not seat fully into the valve cover. I was told by the dealer this is normal but the gasket I took out sat flush with the lip of the valve cover. This new protrudes about 3 to 4 mm up from the valve cover channel it sits in.

Does anyone know if this is the way it is supposed to fit.
