Oil leaking from top bolt on filter housing

On my W111 I noticed a leak at the top bolt on the oil filter housing, this is not the bolt you undo to remove the housing on the bottom. In my schematic I see the bolt has a spring inside and a couple other bits, I'm curious if I can tighten it down or does it need a certain "setting" or position since the spring is in there, and what does this bolt do anyway? My searches all brought up the bottom bolt as the topic.

Wanted to update this thread as I was told on another forum that this bolt is for an oil bypass and the small leak is caused by simply being loose or that it needs another crush washer.
