Caulk around running lights?

All the running light housings look like they have several holes in the sides, vents? I cleaned the old caulk out but don't know if I should caulk over the vents? I would bet to caulk them.

we caulk three sides (left, top, right) and leave the bottom uncaulked. that way any water sneaking in is less likely to enter the outside skin, or pond behind the lamp.
