I think it is a bug. It has been discussed but it is good to bring it up again and I think it should be fixed but I don't think it will be.

You may be right. In some ways I hope you're right. Seems more chance of fixing a bug than adding it. Fortunately, I don't actually require focus distance for what I'm doing.

It just seemed odd that it wasn't there. I wondered if perhaps it wasn't there because of the fly-by-wire focusing system.

It's not a bug so much as Nikon (like all camera manufacturers) hiding information proprietary maker notes. If you want to help resolve this, see http://u88.n24.queensu.ca/exiftool/forum/index.php/topic,10400.msg54806.html#msg54806.
