it seems correct in aperture priority mode. why don't you use shutter speed priority to 1/250? using full manual mode is more likely in this case.

If you aren't supposed to use it in A mode, then what is the point of "minimum shutter speed" as a configuration for the auto-ISO mode? In S or M, you would be fixing the shutter speed, so that setting would be meaningless.

I think the whole point of this feature is that in A or P mode, you can set the "minimum" shutter speed you can tolerate, but you want the camera to choose a faster shutter speed when it meters that it can do so while also keeping the ISO below the max.
