well it should look the same, there is no reason to change the shape because then it wont read the fluid level properly. the new one fits much tighter now right? over time yes the rubber will start to shrink again when trans fluid gets on it. nothing you can really do except replace it every few years. and wipe off around the inside of the hole with a towel before installing the new dipstick, being careful not to let dirt fall in.
