Pentax KP auto iso

When using auto iso on my kp it doesn't want to use iso 100 when focusing infinity. It does seem to work differently when I focus close.
I have tried all different auto iso modes but in this regard they work the same.
Has anyone else noticed this kind of behaviour?
Any help much appreciated!

It could be that highlight protection is on auto. When it turns on, the lowest possible ISO is 200.
