You're confusing METERING with FOCUSING. Yes it FOCUSES on one point , BUT meters for 52 points and averages that.

It meters around the selected AF point in Matrix mode (not just averaging but more complex than that) or meters off of a selected point in Spot metering.

BTW, 51 points on some cameras, 39 on others.
