Focus select question k5IIs

I have noticed on my new K5IIs when I turn the pointer to focus select ,unlike my K5 which only shows one red square to move , on the IIs I get more showing with the middle one brighter, is this a setting ? Can it be changed to only one?

It's still only one. Since the LED's are so bright, they can illuminate the indicators nearby, but you're still only selecting a single point (the visibility of the others greatly depends on the ambient light).
