Default dip tube oring

OK so I'm rebuilding the kegs I just got and found the orings for the dip tube and gas tube that came with the rebuild kit don't seem to match. The ones on the kegs seem to be more like rubber washers than orings. Do the just get squashed over time or do I need to get the same kind of washers?

No, the original ones were square but the new ones will work since they get the same amount of "crush" during assembly. Enjoy your new kegs.
