I agree with Rondv. I did the static scene setup and seems to be
fine. Here's the setup. camera at matrix metering, single point focus
selected, AF-C,and shooting Menu A3 set to 51 points 3d tracking. I
framed a scene with some bright and dark areas, then half pressed the
shutter. Then, while keeping the shutter half pressed, I moved the
focus point around , and, as the subjects on the focus points changed
from bright to dark, as did the exposure. I changed accordingly...
Did I misunderstood the way to setup or test ?

Just in case, my firmware versions are A;1.01, B: 1.00

I think you understand well. My first thought was that I didn't understand how he came to the conclusion that the metering was flawed so I checked tracking and metering on static and moving objects where the light changed and the meter responded to the selected focus point and not the center one. His replies are a contradiction to his OP. His test or his camera is flawed.
