Your statement very strongly implies that if the camera finds better contrast elsewhere that it will overide the users selected AF spot and jump to the area with better contrast.

That is exactly what the D800 does.

This is not how the camera should work under any circumstances

Of course not.
The camera should not change focus target without alerting the operator, even if the chosen target isn´t suitable for accurate focus.

As it is now the camera operates just as if correct focus has been found, only to let you know after tha fact. It´s not easy, if at all possible, to see the difference in the VF.
