Small rubber piece nests inside the small crown-looking piece (your second piece from left, or the piece labelled "seals" in fig.19).
So when you tighten down that outer sealing nut, its compressing those crown "fingers" around the rubber piece, causing the rubber to compress around your cable and create a better seal. (there's probably more technical terms for those parts). Hope that helps/makes sense.
