Has anyone had this focus point Issue with D500?

I have my D500 set as group but default, and and AF On  button set for Single point, lately while tracking a bird in group, its switching to single point without touching the Button, it has caused me to miss a few shots because if not being on the bird where the single point was and refocusing on background.. all I can think is there may be dirt under the button or something.. At first I thought I might be pushing the button with out realizing it but lifting my thumb off the camera when it happens it still stays in single point.. some days it does it a lot and others not at all.. I assume this issue could occur with any focus point settings.. I am going to try to turn AF On off and reassign to another button for now see if it stops,  to see if its an issue with the button itself
