Something's not right with the Z7II Auto-Area AF

Z7 II with FTZ and 500 5.6 PF, AF-C in Auto-Area AF.   I press the OK button to trigger the focus point White square,  I select my Target which is moving, I press the AF-ON button, Focus hunts back and forth if the object is moving towards me.  If a press OK again to release tracking, I get the white box again, then press and hold the AF-ON, but focus refuses to lock on and stay on the target even though I have great contrast and Phase (black jet in blue sky).

Either I'm doing something wrong or the camera is very confused.  It seems AF-C does not work very well with this mode and it drops focus.
