M5OD slave cylinder Questions ??

Guys / gals / Ford mechanics

Why is the cap cover fully extended into reservoir?
I have seen on this forum where people said to leave gasket seal extended?
Why? It would seem we could put way more fluid in if we flattened out cover gasket?
Back in the daze, we always took our brake master cylinder cover and massaged it back in, before topping off with fluid.

Why the difference in procedures???
Thank you
