good shout on the pva
You wont see a little gap at the top unless you get down and look for it as the plinths are set back from the cupboard front edge.
You can get clip on seals for the bottom of the plinths although I didn't like them so sealed the edges with wood varnish.
If your floor is not level then you could use sealant for the bottom gap, either floor or plinth colour, I wouldn't seal the top gap as you may need that to get something behind in the future if you ever need to pull them out to get behind them.

I had a similar issue.
I ended using a jigsaw with a fresh blade to trim the plinth.
As mentioned before, I would recommend trimming an extra few mm's and it makes it easier it take it off if need be.

You should have received (with the plinth) a plastic/silicone trim strip that clips on the bottom of the plinth which forms a nice seal between the plinth & floor and makes it easier to clean.

Not sure if you can get these trims separately.
