Do you have a 'Magnetic' Oil Drain Plug??
I installed a Motion Pro 'Oil Filter magnet' Ring, at the 63,944 mile mark, when I started my 'Project'. First Magnet ever in my engine! Looks like the best place to me. Catches the 'fine stuff', which come thru the oil screen!
I think the first one, (I now own 3) may have picked up ferrous material from 63,944 miles of Previous Useage! The heavy Iron settles to the bottom, before it all drains Out. If we catch the 'fine stuff', the first time, it keeps it from becoming 'Finer'! And ending up 'microscopic', suspended in our Oil Samples.
I could be incorrect, just some of my thoughts.
Eventually, I will install one of my used oil filter magnets onto the Back-End of the oil filter, to maybe catch ferrous material before it goes THRU the cold start By-Pass Valve.
No reason other than $'s, that one couldn't use 3 magnets in our engines.
Drain plug and each end of the oil FILTER! They are Re-Useable, as long as one Remembers to remove, wipe and re-install on New Oil Filter.
