Hello -
At least in the diesels, the oil filter cartridge housing seems to hold nearly a quart of oil.
I'm assuming the oil is drawn from the pan into the engine then through the filter before dropping back down to the pan ?
The manual does not indicate pre filling the cartridge housing - just drop in the new filter and fill the new oil through the oil filler on the valve cover.
In the Volvo I've gotten into the habit of saturating the new filter with oil before screwing it on.
