AF and VR

On my Nikon D7000, D600 and D800, I have configured back button focus which I have used for several years now. I love this setup. My question is: What activates the VR function of the lens (assuming it is set )? Is it the BBF button (for D7000 and D600 it's the AE/AF L button, for D800 it's the AF-On button) or is it the shutter release button? It occurs to me that if you use the BBF button to focus and then press the shutter release button, the focus may be slightly altered thus resulting in an OOF image. I believe I read somewhere that for the D800, pressing the AF-On button activates both but not so for the other bodies. Does anyone have an answer for this?
