Yes, there is a gasket but also at the point you describe is a junction of two castings. When remounting the valve cover, you are to apply some sealant at that junction. Maybe whoever had the cover off last, omitted that step. I think its unlikely the gasket needs replacing (btw, at the bottom of the four "half moons" of the gasket, you also need to apply a thin coat of sealant.)
