Z7 auto ISO seems seriously flawed

it makes sense if context is considered

You have two things happening here.  Based on metered data, the aperture priority system affects shutter speed and the auto iso system affects iso.

You are adjusting settings for the auto iso system.  Those settings  don’t affect how aperture priority works.  They can, however, influence what shutter speed gets set to by increasing iso.

What you are looking for is a setting in aperture priority that says, “Don’t go under a shutter speed of 250, even if it means under exposing”

Nikon’s position is apparently that they don’t have their auto exposure modes expose incorrectly.

I would second the recommendations of going to manual mode with auto iso so that you can set shutter speed and aperture where you need it.
