2.4 Oil filter plastic location tube query

At risk of looking really thick I've done an oil change on my 2.4 diesel today.
I'm fairly sure that I've put the plastic fitting that sits in and locates the oil filter back in the correct way, but there was a delay of about an hour before I got round to re-fitting it, and I'm now starting to doubt myself for some reason? I've done this before but can't remember which way it was when I took it out.

The plastic "tube" that locates the oil filter has a "ball end" and an at the other end a "circular tube" with cut-outs type of fitting. So does the "ball end" of the plastic fitting sit at the bottom of the filter or in the cap?
