Tub Emergency Drain

There's an overfill drain in a tub that's located right below the faucet. Most know that it's purpose is to prevent the tub from overfilling.

Is it necessary to put a bead of caulk over the top portion of the drain, or is there a gasket inside that prevents water from leaking in when the water is running/during a shower?

Tub Emergency Drain

There is a gasket behind, between the drain vent and the tub. It is held tight by the trip lever screws/plate. No need for caulk.
