Yup.
Here is the bolt in oil filter adapter and the reddish orange disc in this pic at the 10/11 oclock position is the filter bypass.

Those generally aren't used on boats as the remote filter housing bolts on there instead. back in my car racing days, I would knock out the disc, tap it with a 1/4" pipe tap and screw a plug in it.

^^^True, and thus the oil filters used will have bypasses in them.^^^^
