My Used Oil Filter Consistant Flaw?

Anybody ever notice like me, that every time i change out my filter, no matter brand (Mobil1,Motorcraft,ect) when you look down into the base plate filter flow holes, one hole will have a huge depression up against one area of anti-drainback rubber valve.
Like it blew out. Just one hole though.
Assumption that filter fully clogged, bypass was being used?
Normal? Always wondered. The 3.8 always does it. I think that the Cobra's filters were the same. Anyways see it?
Thanks

This is the view I'm talking about. One of those holes, you'll see the red seal depressed inwards when i change my oil filter.
