Honda usually says to change the filter every other OCI - check the maintenance schedule.
I actually didn't believe you until I looked it up

Not really. If people read the manual, that's actually been standard for lots of cars.
Curious for me. Every car I've messed with has had it spec'd oil and filter.
Saying "if people read the manual" is somewhat self defeating as most wouldn't have access to manuals of new cars, let alone memorize them and stay up to date.
