D850 AF Auto mode, portrait versus landscape difference

When I shoot with AF mode set to Auto and hold the camera in landscape orientation, I have no focus point indicator in the  viewfinder, and the camera chooses the focus for me.  But when I rotate the camera to portrait orientation, about 45 degrees in I get a focus point in the viewfinder, and I can move it as if in dynamic mode.   Is this normal?
