Finally dealt with it today, the leak was a definitive smoking gun from the brass compression fitting behind the filter...not leaking at the filter itself...but the leak from the compression fitting dripped on the back of the filter and down from there, thus creating the illusion it was from one of the two round filter seals.

The compression fitting was surprisingly loose...pesky generator vibration I guess.
