I would expect the opposite to be true

However, I find that the part that really provides an opportunity to
"grab them by the balls" is this one:

Another thing we have noticed her eon the canon UK help desk in our
own tests here with this camera system is that the when a single
focus point is selected if the focus point is not on a solid colour
or tone then the focus will flicker between two different focus
points.

If I was you, I would contact them again (this time by registered
mail), quoting the statement above and candidly asking:

"Am I to understand that your product AF only works, under the
described conditions, if a specific scene contains the stated solid
colors or tones?"
...

If a focus point is in total covered by a solid color that would be a low contrast target and I would expect the camera to have problems with that. If it on the other hand is positioned over a non-solid color the system would have some contrast to work with. So, if I'm not misunderstanding this then that statement from the "help desk" is bogus too.

I hope this whole thing is a joke so Canon UK isn't one.
