Nobody has been leaning on the door but there is now a 1/4 inch gap towards the bottom (beginning about halfway down) unless it is pushed closed tightly.

I think this is just the outer part of the seal - it is about an inch wide - and maybe it is not allowing air exchange with the room.

I have no idea how they are attached nor where I would buy a new one.

Is there a home remedy for this minor annoyance?

It is a door alignment issue.

Simply loosening the screws at the bottom on the hinge side and raising it a bit down there fixed it.
