Sony A7 ii with MC-11, AF-C not working when shooting/full press


I have an A7 ii, firmware version 4.01, and trying it with an MC-11 adapter and a Canon EF 90-300mm lens.  The camera is set for AF-C and continuous LO.  The focus point is set to Center.

If I half press the shutter button, and point it at different things, I can see that the AF-C is working, i.e., the camera re-focuses.

However, if I full press the shutter button and point the camera to different targets, the camera does not re-focus (it keeps taking pictures, but doesn't change focus).

Also, when I half-press the shutter button, and the camera focuses, it is showing several small green squares.

I also have a native Sony 28-70, and when I use that the camera does re-focus correctly, even with the shutter button full-pressed.

I'm hoping that there is some some setting, or settings, that is/are incorrect, but I cannot figure what that might be.

Can someone tell me what that might be?
