K-5 autofocus point issue

I've set my K-5 to center AF point but it looks like in my recent photos from this weekend that it's using the auto AF area grid still. Is there a setting I'm overlooking?

Have you been using your K-5 for long? If your SD card is still in camera with the photos intact, just hit the info button to get a detailed display of each photo, which will include the AF point setting. Putting the AF to center spot only is very easy with the K-5, since it has a dial on the rear to make this specific selection.

Pure guess ... from "experience" ... you didn't manage to knock the af/mf switch to Manual, did you?
Might not have been immediately noticeable through the viewfinder if you were using a wide-angle lens.
