I believe it's similar to windshield adhesive but doesn't get as solid

The old school windshield sealant you are referring to is called butyl. It stays fairly plyable for years. It's probably similar to what's used on the plastic lining for some doors.

The newer sealant on windshield is urethane and is much harder similar to rubber.

as thin as it is on the shield it looks like a thin rolled strip or from a caulk tube

The autozone here sells a butyl strip in a roll. It's pretty close.

I don't know about your car, but mine had thin and thick areas just kind of glopped on. You can stretch this stuff out if it's too thick but I don't think it is. It's stretchy and can be molded like silly putty.

It's really not that hard just go to advance or autozone and buy some. It's just some black gummy tarry **** you push on. It stays soft for years.
