Based on my experience, small box makes AF lock faster than larger box. Based on your story, I'd deliberately point my smallest box on the light switch, lock the focus, and recompose. Try this too just to compare.

Oh I totally agree, I usually use the smallest box for better accuracy, using recompose if needed. My tests were more for helping the OP answer his question. I would imagine it to be faster too as less surface area needs to be processed for contrast.
