From my point of view, I have taken well over 5k shots using pretty much solely manual focus and focus peaking and I dont think I have ever had a mis-focussed shot that was down to the peaking being off.
Admittedly I tend to "rock" over the focus point again and again until I'm sure I've got the maximum peaking nailed and then take the shot.

The OP is trying to use peaking to determine if multiple focus points at different distances from the camera are all in focus. This is a little different and certainly more challenging than trying to nail focus on one point.
