I tend to agree, at least compared to my TT slide.
Yes, there is an "inner" slide seal that rests against the FW's inside wall, but IMO the outer sweep seal also acts as a wind/rain seal. On my TT slide the sweep seal seats snugly against the slide roof and at a slight angle due to an angled rise in the slide-roof at this contact point area.
Your pic almost gives the impression that the slide isn't fully opened, I would confirm from inside the FW that the inner slide seal is seated firmly against the "top" of the wall.
Is the sweep seal gap consistent along the full length of the slide?
I lightened your pic a little and it shows the gap along the seal edge......
Last fall during an extremely windy/heavy rain storm a campsite neighbor experienced water getting into his top mounted slide cabinets...., root cause was that about 3ft of his sweep seal was inverted (didn't deploy outward with the slide fully opened) and channeled water under/behind the sweep seal (didn't have a slide topper).
