Actually this is not a target. This is just used to center the lens. Here is how target looks:

Thanks for the extra information.

Even so the target seems to be three edges not one.

Nikon AF up and including 53 AF point can detect an edge outside the viewfinder AF rectangle in AF-S - and well outside the viewfinder rectangle in AF-C.

It is not difficult to get small variations in focus distance depending on which of the edges the AF chooses as the one intended to be the AF subject.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
