Many here are misinterpreting their results

I did that jp and the exposure changed with the focus point. Whats
the point in shooting a static scene in 3d tracking? Now you're
stating the exposure does change but is not correct. Why do you think
the camera would not give the proper exposure as the focus point and
light changes?

The point is to keep controlled conditions.
It is not because metered value changes that metering is occuring correctly.

That Is why you should use a static scene and move the initial AF point yourself and then metering should change depending on what is under the AF point.

Now you're changing what you originally posted. I'm not trying to
argue with you but you did make the post and I can find no evidence
nor did you give any of the problem (?) you stated.

No I am not changing anything
Remember there were 2 bugs I reported?
Well bug 2 can only be demonstrated with a changing scene, while bug
Here you have to keep the background static and let the subject move

As the subject moves and the af point tracks it, the metering should stay the same, not change. The fact that it changes in this case indicates that the metering does not follow the tracking
Bug 2 seems to be a design desicion I tink. But Bug 1 is really a bug
please check your conditions again:
