Windshield Question (Trim / Moldings)

So my 08 WK Limited started the dreaded A-Pillar & Center Overhead Controls leak this morning. Typical situation, snow piles up, sits, sunroof drain freezes, sunroof basin fill with water. I found all that info on here a while back, actually before I even had this leak. I chuckled to myself when I saw the water because I knew what it probably was before it even happened.

I went to take a closer look, check the sunroof from the exterior and I noticed along the top of my windshield, between the roof and the windshield there seems to be trim missing ( or not..). From my memory, almost all of my other vehicles had a strip of black plastic trim across the top acting as flashing for water running down from the roof to the windshield. I tried to look at some other WK's while driving home today but couldn't tell. See the pics below, should there be some sort of trim where my finger is pointing? I can stick my fingertip in that gap, basically behind my windshield. There is some black caulk or adhesive about 1/4" down that gap behind my windshield, my assumption is that is the adhesive they use to install the glass.


Here is the gap close;
