Puncture pin seal question

My RTP sheridan is using a CCI pierce pin and I noticed the original seal is blown out and gone.

Surprisingly, 12 grams are sealing just fine. In fact I found it easier and quicker to seal a 12 gram without the puncture pin seal.

My question is whether a seal is absolutely necessary? Am I just getting lucky for now and will the puncture pin eventually be damaged by not having a seal?

Can someone with the same experience please chime in?

It's 12-gram dependant. My CCI bucket changer will seal a Crosman 12vie without a seal, but leaks with Leland. It has something to do with the shape of the neck of the 12 gram.

I've owned a couple nelspots without pierce seals, just the pierce pin. They seal just fine until you overpierce, which can be a bit of a pain. I would throw a seal in there just to prevent that chance.
