It needs to be flush or a little bit recessed. The water tight seal is made at the olive so anything past the olive is not needed.
It 'could' be fine with a little protrusion but considering how easy it is to trim it back you might as well do it right.

always best to follow the manufacturers instructions.
Don’t forget the correct inserts!
