I don't think I'd be too excited. Also, all engines use some oil between changes today, and to address the numerous complaints, you'll see on your dip stick now it says "Min" and "Max" instead of "Add" and "Full". The level is fine and there's no need to add any as long as it stays between those marks. We used to have to be very careful to hit exactly the "Full" mark, but the actual level would be low right after the engine was stopped and then a little high after some of that oil had a chance to run down from on top. We were always getting complaints of incorrect level after an oil change.
On your engine if you pour in the specified amount of oil, the level will be somewhere in the middle of those two marks, so you can see that it can likely easily accommodate an extra half a quart without concern. I'm leaning toward the oil on the ground is just normal runoff from the old filter. We get that in our shops all the time.
