Exposure is set by 91k pixel that actually sees color as well if set in 3d-matrix mode. Exposure metering in Nikon also sees highlight and black. It also incorporate focus point as well as scene recognition to arrive at final exposure in matrix 3D mode. I believe spot & center weighted mode see everything in 18% grey 2 dimensional.

I didn't know the 91k pixel saw color -- so I've learned something new. But 3D Matrix mode is still just coming up with its best guess for 18 percent gray -- that will change as soon as shutters come out that dodge and burn (though an old Photo professor of mine used to just do that with longer exposures on 8x10 -- dodging the "sky" or other major highlight).
