Ford v-10 oil change

I replaced my oil today on my class c which has a Ford V10. 2017 Thor.
After I was all done and was pouring the old oil back in a bottle I noticed a washer in the drain bucket. Is there a crush washer on the oil pan drain bolt. I am thinking it fell off the bolt, or its from something else. I started the engine after filling with new oil and NO leaks from the drain bolt... just not sure if it came off the drain bolt.
Does anyone know for sure if the drain bolt should have a crush washer on it.

Have you called ANY Ford dealer or service department and asked? I would think that would be the most reliable and easiest place for information.

According to the parts diagram, it says the "Oil Drain Plug, Including Gasket."

I would be surprised if it is a copper crush washer. I just did the oil in my 2018 GMC Canyon and it uses a rubber gasket that seats into the rim of the plug. The GM parts diagram shows the rubber gasket and I get them at Napa when I replace my oil but the Ford diagram for the V10 does not show a separate gasket.e


When I go to Autozone's website, it does show the rubber gasket for the oil drain plug. It looks just like the GM one.

There is no way it would fall out on its own. I have to take a small flat-blade screwdriver to remove it.
