Whilst higher contrast in a scene generally helps auto focus, the image effect under discussion is produced after auto focus has been completed.

How do you know that?

It is simple - AF is complete by the time the camera records the image - even with a moving subject using AF-C.

When using AF-C the camera AF estimates where the subject will be when the image is recorded.

If it was simple, then there would not be people reporting that AF performance varies with picture control settings.

The camera has to capture the image (i.e. read it off the sensor) and process it to JPG before it can use it.  And the issue is whether it does that processing with the set picture control, or with something else.  And if so, what is that something else.

So what is your source for assuming that the JPG is produced with something else?
