Rubber with threads around it? Do you mean the gasket?

That gets removed every oil change, which is why the new filter has one on it.

Otherwise - can you take a picture and post a link to it?

In? The oil filter gasket fits ON the filter adapter. Should peel off.

Can we get a pic of what you're talking about, in case my visualization is faulty?

Durr - this is in the "4R70W Transmission" line, not the "General Tech".

*mutters to self to check headers better*

Now that I'm visualizing better, how about this:

"When you remove the old filter, watch for the seal to stay in the hole in the valve body. Use a 3/8 drive extension to pry it out, as a screwdriver can scratch the bore."
