Default 3rd Brake Light Leak Fix Question

I sent an email to ford asking them specifically how they fix this issue and told them that I would rather be proactive about it before I have to deal with the end result. The answer I received thanked me for the email and they were sorry to hear about my transmission leak on my new 2010 F-10 and told me to take it to the dealer to have it looked at. So much for that. From reading the forums on here and a couple other places, it seems like the fix is to run a bead of silicone around the light. My question is are you guys just running a bead around the middle of the gasket and then reinstalling the light? I haven't taken mine off to see if it was made of foam or rubber. I assume that (in the event of having to replace a bulb) the silicone comes off of the truck itself pretty easily, but could tear a foam gasket when trying to peel it off. Curious to know what others have done for a fix
