It has lesser filter area, glued cardborad base, problematic rubber anti-drainback valve seals, plastic bypass valves, etc.

Yes, if you are facing the top of the bolt head. However, in this case, he is facing the threaded end of the oil drain plug through the oil pan, and reaching behind the oil pan to loosen the head of the plug, so he turns his wrench clockwise, which would be counter-clockwise if he swapped his position by 180 degrees and put himself behind the oil pan facing the head of the plug.
