"Manual focus point and number of AF points"

Not really D7000-specific but, Just when I thought I have everything figured out, this puzzles me.

I use AF-A a lot and manually move the focus point around to a part of the image I wish the focus to be set on rather than using AUTO to determine the point for me. How does the number of AF points impact this type of usage? No matter how many points I have turned on, I can still move the cursor to any of the 39 points regardless if they're on or off and focus there.

What am I missing? Do the number of points matter in this case? If I have, say 11 turned on, am I actually moving the center of the 11 points around giving a wider focus area?

Thanks!
