Hi, the drain is to take a sample or drain water from the filter if need be, rarely used. The noise is from a small check ball in there that allows the filter to bypass in the event of a clog. The vehicle will still run, but poorly, giving an indication that the filter needs to be changed.

Is the air purged automatically ? When hand tightening has it to be murder tight with a bit of oil on the seals?

Yes, just run the engine off idle for 2 minutes or so to make sure any air gets pushed through without stalling. Yes, oil the seal and just get it good and snug by hand, not tool needed.
