AFON and AEL difference behaviour

I use standard way of taking pictures. I press shutter half way and there is focus and exposition locked. But there is not only locking. Before locking is metering exposure and also focusing. And after successful measuring there is locking both. It is clear.

Sometimes I need to do it separately. AEL button is ok and is similar. I press AEL and camera measure!!! exposition and lock it. I use button like switch so next press turn it off. It is also OK.

But when I press button AFON there is no focusing. There is only focus lock. Why? It should be nice if this button also focus not only lock focus. I need to focus by pressing shutter half way before. Why?

I hope that it is clear what I want. Both buttons I set to work like switch ON/OFF.

Is it posible to set the AFON  the way I want? to focus with AFON?

I am speaking about XT4, but it will be similar on all fuji x I think.
