Lower fuel filter only half used?

Ok, here's a new one.

I was changing my fuel filters today as they were overdue, did the top filter and while dirty it looked normal, then I changed my lower fuel filter and when I pulled it out, it only looked half used. Half of it was almost as clean as the new one, while the other half was very dirty. IIRC they are factory ford filters. I always do the purge procedure after a filter change, I empty the water separator often. Any Ideas?

Half and half.....


The dirty half......


The clean half......

I have been informed that is not an OEM filter, and it seems to be missing a weep hole.

That's weird.

I don't use oem filters and haven't ever had that happen.
