Oil filter torque

I just did my first oil change on my new-to-me 2005 suburban 1500. I've done plenty of oil changes, and this isn't all that challenging, but I subscribe to alldata and took a look. It specifies 18 ft lbs for the drain plug and 22 ft lbs for the filter. I'm using a Delco filter and I usually install it using the 2/3 to 1 turn method like it says on the package. I think that torque value will make the filter a whole lot tighter than that. Is this an error or is there some reason with this engine that we want our filters super tight?
