Stupid question

I shoot AF-S most of the time but on occasion AF-C. I recently got a zoom lens that has power zoom for video. If I use AF-C in photo mode and zoom in the focus is not updated so I have to press down half way to refocus. In video mode it keeps focusing as I zoom in on the object.

In photo mode does AF-C only follow the object if it is moving but loose focus if I zoom in?

Is this correct or am I over thinking this?
