Sea Level for the purpose of this question is, the distance of the surface of calm ocean water from the center of the Earth as such point can be best defined.

Centripetal force results in a oblate (flattened spherical)
g-field with slightly lower levels at the Equator and other
anomalies due to ocean depth and crustal density.
Time averaged sea level readings made by satellite
show something close to a perfect sphere at sea.
