Yep, darn tootin.
The best ones to get are the filters with the bypass in the open end of the filter. Motorcraft american ones, Wix 51515 are two that come to mind.
On a normal filter with the bypass at the closed end, when the bypass opens, all the crud in the bottom of the filter is washed back on to the bearings.
With the bypass at the thread end, the oil does not wash over any filter material at all and the oil does not pick up any gunk.
That's the theory anyway.
