The plot sickens

I took a close look at the image exif using ExifToolsGui. ExifTools indicates "AFPointsUsed=C6 (Center)" for image 701_1009, for example.

Looking at one of my D300 images that do NOT show a focus point in ViewNX2, it indicates "AFPointsUsed=(none)"

From that I can only conclude that at least my own install of ViewNX2 is not displaying focus points for your images although it works for my D300/D700 images. And apparently you did get focus points on at least most or all of those shots?

Presumably your camera playback is doing a better job of that.

I'd be curious if anyone reading this, and having a D7100, can confirm or deny that my ViewNX2 situation is normal here. I did a fresh install of ViewNX2 2.7.1 and Capture NX2 2.4.1 in February.

I am having other issues with your files. If I open an image in ViewNX2 and zoom in to 100%, and then click other thumbnails, sometimes I get "Unupported File Type". It always works with the normal zooom to full screen setting (the widest zoom setting).

In addition, I cannot open any of your files in Capture NX2 2.4.1. I get a message box indicating "Cannot Load file: {file path/name}. Sigh. I think I have seen other posts with these problems, and the solution was to uninstall and re install the Nikon apps. But I just did that.

Just to say I may not be much help here until I get this straight.

I would suggest you do the focus point positioning test I mentioned previously. If My analysis of the EXIF is correct, it is hard to figure out 701_1009, for example. It would be tough to miss that one.
