I think I fitted previous oil filter wrongly!

I think I may have fitted the first oil filter wrongly!

My Mk2 Dispatch 1.6 needed an oil change *badly* when we picked it up.
So I did, with a new filter.

Then again a week later, because the oil was black like paint on the dipstick.Then again yesterday, with synthetic ACEA C3 oil. The oil looks decent on the dipstick, now.

But as I lined up the locating tab on the filter with the hole in the housing, I realised I had no memory of locating it the first time. (the tab is visible at the bottom of the filter in my pic)

Is it crucial to oil flow, or just to locate the baffle that some filters have built-in to their base? (the filter I removed at the first change had that baffle)

Oddly I just did my oil, with a genuine filter 1109CL and it just dropped in. No clicks or orienteering all.
