For some Honda old model like SM4, SV4, CRV which using the F20A, F22A, B20A engine, you may noted that their intake manifold gasket may have one of the whole, is strengthen with the o-ring seal.
There must be some reason why they need to design a o-ring seal at that area, but to include the high quality seal on this area, this gasket cost will be much higher compare to those without it, so you may found those local manufacturer making the gasket without the seal.

Some overhaul gasket set include oil pump o-ring in it some not. For Toyota 1RZ engine overhaul set gasket, it may have a reason to not include the oil pump o-ring in the gasket set.
It is because it may have 2 types of oil pump install on this engine, one of them have 8 holes on the oil pump itself and the other one having 9 holes, and for that using 9 holes oil pump, this oil pump can be seen on the 3RZ engine as well.
