The cars today aren't make it look nice, just functional since that is hidden under a body panel. I think you are fine. If you have a concern, talk to your dealer and if something isn't right your warranty will cover it.

I hear you, but is it for soundproofing? If so, what is it called? What about the gray rubber cutout?

I'm pretty sure the yellow is a seam sealer, (think of automtotive caulk). The gray is for sound deadening. Most cars I've owned, this is just slapped in patches and random, not the whole panel. Nothing abnormal at all.
