Potential DIY intake problem

Howdy y'all.
I did the DIY intake on our 7.3l about 4,000 miles ago.
I installed an e99 compressor wheel and CCV re-route the other day and the piece of exhaust pipe that I used as the joint for the
intake had a thin layer of VERY fine dust on the inside stuck to the inside.
I thought the whole reason of using this trash-can sized filter was because it filtered better than stock???
I know I installed it correctly (it's 2 hose clamps.... lol)

Is the dust in there fine enough to pass the filter and doesn't pose a problem
or is there an issue with the filter and should I worry about dusting the motor?

Are there any cracks or anything with the factory plastic piece that is still on there?

No, there's no cracks.
And the exhaust piece that had the dust in it is directly after the filter.

The only way it could have gotten there is:
-if the dust is small enough to pass through the filter
-there is a hole in the filter
-the dust was already there...

Ya, that's probably what I'm going to do. I just hate to go 1,000 miles if it's letting dust in.
