AF-A always starts out in AF-S mode. So when the AF-Assist light comes on, you're in AF-S. On my D90, when my SB-600 is mounted, AF-A never switches into AF-C mode. It's as if it's disabled. This behavior is undocumented. So you need to check your D7000 to see if AF-A even switches to AF-C when the flash is on the camera.

When the SB-600 is not mounted, the built-in AF-Assist light comes on for AF-A initially, but remains off when the camera switches to AF-C.
