You actually do not fill from the drain plug. You fill into the fill plug.

The fill plug takes a special service tool fitting that goes in to allow fluid to be "injected" in little by little. Some shops use this adapter with a power steering fluid exchange machine to add fluid (using Mercon V fluid of course) in order to accelerate this process.

The transmission is full when at the fill hole fluid starts to overflow.
