A6500 in Manual mode: unexpected Face Detection

The other night, I was trying out my new 16-55mm 2.8 lens at jazz event. My settings were

Face detection off

Focus area flexible spot

Auto exposure locked to focus area

Meter mode spot/normal

Back button focus implemented

Manual mode

Every once in awhile the face detection would appear on a face different from the one the focus area was on when I pressed the BBF.

Anyone ever have this happen? Any thoughts as to why it should/can happen?
