silicon or putty with drain?

I am installing a garbage disposal in my new kitchen. It's a waste king that came with a rubber gasket. It doesn't call for silicon or putty because of the rubber gasket. Should I use some anyway?

Rubber gasket goes on the bottom.

Plumber's putty between the top of sink and disposer flange.
