Can't get a strait answer, there might also not be one: Oiled gaskets?

I've got an NU50, the 'ol Urban Express, and I am replacing a leaky old gasket that covers the final drive/transmission (part #2: https://www.hondapartshouse.com/oemparts/a/hon/506b92f4f870023420a1f262/transmission )

This gasket seals in an amount of funky gear oil, and I've realized I have no idea how this process goes, aside from learning that this appears to be a controversial topic. Loads of conflicting information and petty infighting on forums from across the globe.

Some say soak it in oil, others say that's unnecessary and to put it on dry cause that's how the factory does it, there's a corner that votes to rub some grease on it to prevent it from tearing when you next take it off, someone says absolutely don't do that silliness with the grease and put some sort "sealer" on it instead, and then some guy alone in his corner rather creepily describes some sort massaging procedure to rub anti-seize into it.

This is a little bit nuts to be honest. Am I about to start a dumpster fire by asking this? (edited)
