Having done the oil change on the 3.6 engine in my own Journey, I can confirm that the oil filter housing does NOT retain any oil when the engine is not running. Pre-filling the chamber would be a waste of time as the oil would immediately drain down to the oil pan.

This is the easiest oil filter change I've ever done. I used a crescent wrench to loosen the cap of the housing. The oil filter is affixed to the housing cap. Just pop it off and then pop the new filter medium on. Replace the cap with new filter attached. DONE. No mess of oil raining down as you unscrew an upside down filter and no pre-filling.
