The problem is most pronounced with wide angle lenses wide open (snipped) This time they don't want me to send the body in but rather submit RAW images which I have done

Your autofocus issues seem to be with subjects the D800 instructions and the instructions with the 14-24 and 16-35 reasonably explain can result in poor focus accuracy, and where the Nikon suggested solution is to consider using manual focus.

If, when focusing on the same subject, the Left AF points work significantly worse than the Right AF points then clearly there is a fault.

If the complaints about D800 AF issues were due to poor targets then we would expect just as many complaints about the Right AF points as there are about the Left AF points.
