Sealant coming off flange pipe transition to tank

I was looking down my toilet and saw some tp hung up on something. Used a stick to dislodge and noticed it was hung up on a loop of caulk that was almost detatched. The toilet in my 05 Safari is raised on a box. The flange assembly has a black pipe that goes straight down about 8 inches and it appears to terminate inside a wider tube slanting down to the tank. This is where the caulk is. Using a mirror and flashlight, I looked the "transition" from underneath and saw a grey, seemingly flexible seal to close the gap between the pipes - like a telescope as if to promote movement. The caulk was apparently put there to cover that gap, but is now 90% pulled away.

I am hoping someone could explain this design and provide their opinions whether or not I need to remedy or leave be. I suspect that grey seal is designed to do a job and the caulk might possibly be redundant.

I removed some 8 screws holding the flange to the floor, but was unable to budge it. Not sure how that comes out as well.

Thanks!

Let me ask this - does anyone know what pipe connectors would be used to connect the flange pipe to the tank? Again, the pipe going down seems to be an inch or so less in diameter than the elbow it's connected to. That gap had caulk in it, and it seemed to be covering a seal of some sort.
