Wacky D500 Lock ON Focus Tracking problem. Lots of pics.

What's going on here? D500 with a new re-furbished Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary. AF-C, Group, Release, AF Activation on, Focus Tracking with Lock On default (both in center). Not sure if I even bothered to separately focus. Just may have pressed down the shutter button as I usually do when the action is fast. These are the first to last shots of 10 FPS bursts. Instead of locking on to the initial good focus, it's as if it treats the initial focus as a missed focus (maybe because I was using release and didn't focus separately?) and grabs the next thing to come along and holds that as if that was the correct subject till it's gone and than switches back to the initial focus. Have 3 examples.

Again
