I feel like I want to weld that seam together - but if that's the way it is from the factory I guess I'll just leave it?

This slot is where the inner panel water deflector tucks into, which is a waterproof membrane that sits between the door frame and the inner door panel. The water deflector is sealed front and rear but the bottom is tucked in here to direct any water back inside the door instead of going into the cabin. 

Don't forget to put the water deflector back in when re-assembling doors.

Yes, makes sense otherwise water would come out between the door and the inner panel. I used new water shields on my car but I know I didnt put the bottom in that slot.
