According to p. 735 of Head First,


Which about filters are true?
A. Filters may be used to create request or response wrappers.
...


From the examples of the book, I think it is the developer who creates a wrapper for the request/response and pass the wrapper object to the filter chain's doFilter method, like the example on p.720:

The filter itself does not create the wrapper.

True, but that is not how I interpret that sentence. I interpreted it like this: if you want to work with request or response wrappers then a filter is a appropriate place to create them.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
