I suppose it's not the best target for AF to work... but it seems to be the same problem as with the portrait shots - the camera just picks whatever contrasty area it wants as opposed to the point  selected.

I see enough difference in the framing of the two shots (camera moved between shots) to account for the difference in location of the AF point in the top two blowups.

So, I don't see any indication that the camera chose a different AF point. It just looks like one image is front focused.
