Where is a center-weighted area?

I usually stick with matrix metering and sometimes use NDG filters or just post-process the areas that were not properly exposed.
I have tried several times the center-weighted area and it does not seem to work as I expected.
Looking in the manual I find that the exposure to be used is calculated based on the metering info taken from an area of n millimeters around the central point of the frame.
I was always under the impression that in Nikon cameras, I have the D7000, the center weighted area is around the selected focus point.
Which one is it?
Is there anything else I should know about center weighted metering which is not in the manual?
