IIRC the black ring goes toward the block.

should not...funny you ask... in the picture above.... when i did the rods on my 850 , i did replaced/upgraded the breather box with R one...there is a 2mm gap to the block cause it does NOT fit perfectly on this block..so for whatever strange reason i decided to put ring towards the block like you see in the volvo pic you posted and it developed a light oil smear around there...now i'm sure most would not even noticed it, but shiaat like that bugs me ...so i put it the way always do it with ring toward the breather box with the same exact seal/ring...and as you can see now we are 10k miles later here ..no leaks...but really just make sure you use wd-40 and slide it on both sides and it should not leak either way. :beer:
