Actually, IIRC, it only goes to the previous line if that line is empty.

Yes, indeed.  But I don't think fill.el depends on this detail of
forward-paragraph's behavior.

I can't remember what forward-paragraph does for a 0 argument, but for
positive arguments it goes to "the next Nth paragraph end" and for
negative argument it goes to the next "Nth paragraph start".
And fill.el only calls that function with values +1 and -1.

More specifically, fill.el mostly does something like:

  (fill-region-as-paragraph (progn (forward-paragraph -1) (point))
                            (progn (forward-paragraph 1) (point)))
