We did the McMaster door seal so thats a little different. I wanted to try to be helpful anyways so here are some of the figures referenced:

Others will chime in but I'll give it a shot - I think the idea is that the U-channel along the sides and top of the cabin edges help to keep moister out, where as on the bottom flange it isnt quite as important due to the seal pushing up against it and the tenancy for the water to be flowing downwards.
