I would certainly feel that area for softness as in water infiltration damage... but then if it is firm just seal over with the eternabond tape

if the sealant is on tight I would go over it AFTER CLEANING THE CAULK... less possible damage to the roof... if there are gaps and you can peel it up, then yes I might try to peel off what I can...

here is a link to a thread I did recently while doing roof work on my camper using Eternabond...

Eternabond, not eternal!
