tenon reciever loose?

just noticed that the tenon reciever soldering on my selmer mark VI 1956 don't seem to stick all around (see the black arrow). I've inherited the horn so I don't know it's history, but it looks like the tenon reciever has been repaired (soldered) before.
It plays wonderful, and the neck seems ok in place. What's the sign when there's a leak in the tenon reciever? Is this critical and needs to be repaired?

Thanks. So the function of the clamp ring is mainly to prevent the neck from sliding side to side? It looks like a tech. has tried a spot soldering some time in the the past.
