Slideout seals / bulbs

We have a Wildcat 313re with 3 slides. Mounted to the outside walls of the camper is the wipers and bulb seals around the opening for the slides.There is caulk between the wall and the rubber. I am wondering if any one knows how these seals are mounted to the wall? It appears to me that there is a track and the rubber wiper/bulb slides into the track. Then it appears as if they caulked around the track. Can any one inform me if this is correct if not educate me as to how they are mounted and why is there caulk there?

Thanks

jmh, wish I could help but as you see no one has replied. I'm pretty sure that the bulb/wiper slides into a track and the track is what is caulked. From some of my searches it looks to be many different profiles. I would feel comfortable replacing them myself if I was sure I had the correct ones.
