When you stuff yourself, you overeat.
I think you are arguing about collocation. We say "a filled cake" and "stuffed potatoes".
It's a filled moon cake, period!
BTW, I have an apple pie in the oven. It has an apple filling, of course. It smells gooooood!
You gonna share that pie? ;)

I made some search and looked up in the dictionaries.
"Stuffed (stuffing/dressing)" may be likely to use when you put the things into chicken, duck etc. The things may be some minced/chopped meat etc.
"Filled (fillings)" may be likely ot use when you put the things into cake, sandwich etc. The things may be some sweet ingredients (eg jam).
Nevertheless, it is perfectly ok to interchange each other.
You are welcome, NewHope. :D
