I examined the images that you posted at 100% resolution, and there does seem to be a loss of detail in "natural features" such as trees, and blades of grass in the foreground. However, other aspects of the image are very crisp. Automobiles, people, roads: All very sharp and detailed.

Could it be a consequence of sharpening procedures inside the camera that fail in situations where it is almost impossible to train AI routines for.

I appreciate that you are frustrated that the camera is failing to settle on a focus point in continuous focus mode. But with a stopped down 24mm lens, how important is this, really? If AF-C poses a problem, use it in AF-S, or select manual focus. Stopped down, the 24mm is as close as you can get to focus-free... Everything is in focus. Don't worry about it.
