So, you don't need to activate the display of the PDAF points but it is probably a good idea if you are using a focus mode that can select a focus point that is outside of the PDAF point area (because in that case PDAF will not be used).

Confusing indeed, but glad to hear I can turn off the AF points in the display.  They are very distracting.

But now a better question, if you are using a small AF focus area (such as flexible spot) does the camera limit PDAF focus points to those WITHIN the spot AF rectangle?  I sure do not want the camera deciding to use AF points (PDAF or not) outside my AF rectangle.
