Have a horrible feeling this is a stupid question especially as I have used the Back AF button method for a long time.

If I track something say a bird (to use I think Jason Odells example) and when the bird alights on a branch I release the button and reframe within the focus area to include the tree then the red square on the LCD or in Capture NX2 shows not where focus stopped (button release) but where the shutter fired.
Is that correct, I am trying to understand how that focus square works and is it a bit misleading in this instance when viewed at a later time?

Thanks for looking
