Dealer didn't change my oil filter? VQ40

OK- so I just did my 2nd oil change at 6500 miles. The first one, at 3000 miles- I took advantage of a free one by the dealer where I bought my truck, and provided the Mobil 1 5w-30 myself.

2 suspicious things:
1- I provided the dealer w/ a 5 quart bottle and a ~2 quart left bottle, the 2 quarts I found to be untouched afterwards. (Granted, even with a filter today I found 5 quarts was fine- 1/2 way up dip stick, didnt need much topping).
2- The filter I had to take off today for my 2nd change was a real bi*ch and had the japanese writing on it and pn 15208-31U0D , which I've read is a factory filter only. From a different dealer I was provided with a 15208-31U00 that I used today. It was identical to the 31U0D.

So- did the dealer change my filter the first time? I'm calling tomorrow to see if they stock the 31U0D filter. If not I'm calling B.S. on them.
Thoughts? :thatswck:

My dealer offers free oil and filter for life. Only catch is the oil grade is low and the filter is cheap. To get the Nissan filter and Penzoil dino oil is $45 extra, Mobile I $90. So I do my own.
