The negative gap means that add-ons occupy some additional space to the left, beyond its grid, in order to seal the gap between itself and the building. Land units cannot walk over that space; however, landing or constructing buildings to the left of the add-on is still allowed, otherwise add-ons would never be able to reattach once separated.
