Default Cometic Air Cleaner Gasket?

I just finished a top end job and have the Cometic air cleaner gasket that came in the kit. I want to use it...(inbetween the aftermarket support bracket and the carb intake mouth) The previous gasket I used had a plastic side you peeled off and it exposed a sticky side which was stuck to the backplate.

Does the Cometic gasket have a sticky side where I have to peel off a plastic film? I don't wanna start picking it if its just supposed to sit in place secured with the carb bolts(maybe reusable?)
Anyway scratchin my head here. Thanks again Cometic for the wonderful instructions included in your top end kit.

Every adhesive backed one I've ever had was covered with big obvious white paper.

I always hated them. CVP was one of the few places I knew I could get ones that don't use the adhesive backing. If Cometic doesn't do it either, that's great to know. I'll be sure to buy theirs next time I need some.
