Furthermore, even if the D850 had difficulties when focusing, it should not have prevented me from activating the shutter release (configured behaviour ...)

I believe you are right. In AF-C set to release priority nothing should stop it from firing the shutter AFAIK. That's kind of the point of BBF set to release priority, it just doesn't care about focus...
I tested my D5 with the same settings and could not replicate the issue w/ the lens cap on... the only difference was that I did not have a SU-800 installed (I have one somewhere).
