Oil dip stick fill issue

I changed the oil in the truck recently and after dumping 3 gallons in I checked the dip stick expecting to see the oil on the low mark, confirming the last few quarts. I did completely drain the pan so I was a little shocked when the oil on the dip stick marks at the top of the "normal" range.

I added the remaining quarts to total 15 and the oil measurement didn't change. I check my oil @ least once a month or when fueling up and it doesn't matter if I had just drove all day or the truck sits for a weekend. When I check the stick, I pull, wipe, reinsert and pull to check and the oil on the end of the dip stick is always the same.

Am I completely retarded as why the heck is there always oil in the normal even when I did the initial check at 12 quarts, which should be low enough IMHO to not show up on the dip stick but it shows "normal".

"New" 05 no payment, all original 305k and runs like a champ
