Dave, when you trim the ends of the gasket to fit or butt up against the other gasket material on the end covers, the dabs of silicone in the corners serve to "weld" the two loose ends together and hold them in place when you tighten the cover down. The 550 WSM shows it fairly well, and the 575M WSM has actual pics.
The 550 WSM is free for downloading from ferraridatabase.com, but you might consider picking up a 575M WSM from Daniel @ Ricambi. It's worth every penny of the $125 or $150 that he charges.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
