Another issue, not new with 1.10

This is an eye-detect focusing issue that has been around since the advent of the Z6 II, maybe even in the Z6 (I just don't recall) and remains with 1.10.

The behavior is that, during composition of the image, the yellow eye-detect box indicates one eye, but in the resulting image the red box is on the other eye. If you have image review on, this can be seen in real time. I saw it in this image yesterday, in which the camera indicated focus on the left eye, while the image had the focus point on the right eye. Yet, the left eye came out perfectly in-focus at the *predicted* point.

Again, the cropping is intentionally tight for privacy purposes, and the yellow and red boxes are simulated, but based on what I saw. 85mm F1.8G lens on FTZ adapter, at 1/250 sec, F4.
