Default Air leak sources questions

I've read some about how to find air leaks and where they occur, but I still have a question. I have seen suggestions that the cap that holds the throttle cable and carb slide in place is a source. I have seen it suggested that some kind of sealant should go on the cap threads.

1. How can this be when it is connected/inline to the same pipe as the air cleaner?

2. Does this blown head cover show signs of running lean from an air leak?
