adhesive on ifixit replacement proximity sensor?

iphone 7: Original proximity sensor has rough gold-like surface. The replacement I received from ifixit is smooth black. Thinking maybe this is a black adhesive strip that needs removed, but afraid I will screw something up if I try to pull this off. Does it come off?

Judging by the image shown here there are only small pull tabs for temporary protective layers:

I see about 2-3:

- One on the front camera lens itself

- One right behind the earpiece speaker contacts

- And one on the proximity sensor itself
