As stated, it is likely dirt, and anything else that has made it's way into the tank. The filter is doing exactly what is supposed to do.

I just bought a used 2001 and when I changed the fuel filter HOLY COW

It was horrible inside, the filter was black

After cleaning out the bowl with brake cleaner, and running probably over a gallon of diesel threw it too flush as much of the crap out of the fuel bowl, it's amazing how much better it is starting too run, I still want too drop the tank and have it cleaned out, I can only imagine how bad it looks.
