Back Button Focus/Recompose?

On my old DSLR, I could focus at an object in the photo and then holding the shutter release down half-way, move the camera so that the focus point is now on something else, and then press the shutter release the rest of the way down. The focus doesn't change when I move the camera, even though the original object is at a different location in the frame.

On my Nikon Z 6II I can do the same with the shutter release button. But how do I get the same effect using back button focus?
