Having a REAC on the 25th of this month, does a sagging refrigerator seal take points away from one that needs to be replaced?

Yes. Damage to the refrigerator gasket of any kind such as torn and sagging will be recorded as an L1 deficiency but as of August 9, 2016, repairs to refrigerator gaskets with tape that are less than one inch ARE permitted.

You also want to be sure that there is no mold or mildew on the fridge or freezer seals as this will be recorded as an EH&S Air Quality Hazard.

Hello and yes, this would be a level 1 deficiency for the damaged appliance. Sometimes, if the seal itself is in decent condition but the corner has come up, you may be able to clean it with alcohol and use an adhesive to hold it back in place. But your best bet is going to be to replace the entire seal.
