Replacement battery has thin film on each section do I need to remove?

None of the tutorials or images of the replacement battery I've seen seem to have this thin film over each battery. Am I supposed to remove them?

Peal it off. It's a protective shipping covering. Leaving it on will cause the battery to retain more heat than it should.

You can leave it there. The film has no impact on the functionality of the batteries. Is just a transport protection.
