New 6 - Battery Cover Issue

Just got my first gopro, a hero 6, and when I put the battery in I noticed that the cover seems to bulge a bit versus when the cover is on and the battery is out. I see there is a black piece of rubber of plastic on the underside of the lid which I assume it meant to keep tension on the battery, but I just wanted to know if this was normal or not. It would seem to me that this would affect it's water-proof capability...

 

here is a picture with the top half showing no battery and the bottom half showing what it looks like with the battery installed
