Fill Plug - GM Auto tran

Doing a drain and refill after putting a couple thousand miles since complete drain and filter change. Honestly, I can not recall there ever being any washer or o-ring on the fill plug but by George there's nary one!! Can someone confirm that there is or isn't supposed to be? It was dry as a bone around the plug so I know it's not seeping at all. Look at the image and see that it appears to be a groove under the head of the plug.
BTW - four those of you who have done this you are surely aware how tight the space is to get that plug out, so the one pic is my config on how I managed it :-)

Haha guess what I found...when pouring the old out of the dragon pan? Yep. It feel out when the fluid started coming out when the plug was removed!! All is good now :-)
