D800 fn button odd behavior

I have fiddled around with the menu settings on my D800 off and on. I have presently assigned spot metering to "press fn button only" and toggle image area to "fn button + control wheel". As far as I remember this used to work fine, but now pressing the fn button activates the image area selection without touching the wheel. Spot metering cannot be activated unless I turn all wheel options off in the menu. Does anyone recognize this?
You have to select either Button only or Button + wheel only. Can't do both.
Some combinations behave differently. For instance,I have Spot Meter and Speed/Aperture Lock assigned to the Preview button.

This symptom is especially serious in that an individual displaying it never thinks of it as a sign of ill health but as proof of his/her strength. ...Friday, it is too late to save this culture--this worldwide culture...
