I must be confused about the crankcase.

There are no drain plugs on your crankcase. Sportsters are "dry sump" motors-- oil is NOT supposed to be in the crankcase -- but, if the bike sets a long time, the check-valve on your oil pump can allow oil to seep in-- this is "sumping". Usually the amount of oil in the case is small, and not much of a problem-- because when you start the engine, all oil WILL evacuate the sump-- very quickly! If your oil level is not full, DO NOT add oil to the tank until the engine warms up-- you might find yourself wearing it.
Good Luck,
Joe
