Hard top to windshield seals...help

Hope someone could clear up some confusion I have on how the seals are installed on a hardtop.

I have attached images of the seals in question.

The photo shows me holding the small foam seals that LR labels as RH and LH front corner seal windscreen to roof.

These are what i am confused about as to where exactly they go.

I think I have it figured out but wanted some clarification if I could. In photo number two the seal is positioned where it makes the sense to me and is circled in red.

Finally, if the seal does indeed go there then the right angle "tab" on the seal would need to roll up once the top is sucked down to the windshield. That leads me to the final question. If that tab rolls up then there needs to be room for it to settle in. The photo with the red and white arrows shows where my question is in regards to the main rubber seal that goes into a channel in the roof. Is that seal supposed to end at the end of the channel or go past it? If the seal goes past the channel there is no room for the tab on the foam seal. Basically does it stop at the red arrow or continue to the white arrow?

Hope this all makes sense.

Thanks in advance for any help!
