It seems to be glued in place.

I have installed a silicone gasket and still fuel enters the boot. What is
this white plastic sleeve?

If you take the nuts and the heavy paper insulation off the screw, you'll
see the screw goes through a white plastic sleeve that isolates the screw
from the body of the sending unit. The sleeve also holds the ground wire in
place - there's a groove along the bottom of the hole in the body that the
ground wire sits in. The sleeve provides the seal. Don't twist the screw -
the lead to the wound resistor is soldered to the screw.
