It's a kind of strain relief.  Without that flexible glue, dropping the 
computer could snap those caps off at their base.  Since this is the 
sort of thing that occasionally happens to computers in shipping, 
computer manufacturers try to make sure their machines can withstand a 
few of these sharp shocks.

After all, damage in shipping is damage during the warranty period, and 
the shipping companies are a PITA to get insurance money out of.
