Sony a7iv - AF-ON Button - Acts as Focus Hold

Dear All,

I'm quite new to the Sony alpha world, but I feel like I've figured everything out except for the AF-ON button. I've haven't assigned any fancy custom features to it and yet it seems to work as AF-Hold both in all still and video modes.

As far as I know it should help in back-button focusing enabling AF-C while in any other focusing mode (except for lense-toggled MF).

When I'm shooting stills this is not really a problem as usually I use AF-C anyways. But when shooting video it would be great to engage and disengage tracking for certain scenarios.

I use Sigma DG DN lenses some Contemporary and some Art.

Is my problem rooted in "thinking" "firmware" or "camera lens interaction"?
