Phase vs Contrast AF

Hello,

I'm new to the Fuji system, still learning nuances of this platform.

My understanding is that the middle focus points are phase and the outer ones are contrast? (X-T20)

I recently picked up the 35 F2 and notice that the lens tends to hunt back and forth a bit when focusing. I thought that with phase detect you don't have that focus hunting? FWIW the 18-55 doesn't exhibit this behavior.
