Why no need to seal the gaps on the color bond roof?

Don't you think it may leak again in a heavy thunder storm if the roof is not completely sealed?

Thank you very much for your advice. I have emailed Rawson Homes to peace of my mind to seal the roof for hurricane safety. Cheers

I do not know how to check if there is a moulded sealer installed between the roofing sheets and flashing. Can you please tell me how to check it? Thanks.
