"Focus Point in Playback"

I set my new D7100 to show the focus point the playback menu but the center focus point is always highlighted in pics taken. Am I setting something wrong or is this normal? I can tell the focus point I selected was used in taking the picture.

The camera should be showing you the focus point used for the still pictures. Run some tests: Put the camera in AF-Single mode using a single focus point and take multiple pictures using various focus points. What does the camera show you?

thanks for the reply, Joseph! I must have changed something cause now it is displaying the focus point used again!
