The (~15+- count) sparkplug and coverbolt grommets are more important. Flat is flat.
Not sure what you mean by "flat is flat"? none of the gaskets are flat. They are all molded rubber.
It's only 5 grommets per cover, 10 total.
Spark plug tubes seals will seep oil into the wells, but not much...
Cover leaks are ussually from the lower edge/corners, and from the lower grommets.
I'd replace the Gasket and Grommets. Spark plug tube seals could be reused. I know sometimes the kits come with them, sometimes not.
