If anything, I think they all exhibit front-focus which suggests that a micro-adjustment is what's needed instead of mis-focusing.

First two - FF; Flowers - not sure, but definitely not FF; last one - BF.

Good luck with your attempts to find a single micro-adjustment which works with all conditions (including flowers).

Really? Look at the edges of the last photo and you can see that it was shot on an angle. The U and X are in the foreground. The L is in the background. That can't mean back-focus.
