These pictures demonstrate nicely that if you focus on a tree that has a plant in front of it, you get a sharp tree and a fuzzy plant in front, and if you focus on the plant in front, you get a sharp plant and a fuzzy tree. I don't see what any of this has to do with apertures or FF/BF - the camera very clearly choose a completely different place to focus here betwene one picture and the other, and that's the difference between these pictures. I don't see any camera or lens problem here - the scene is far too convoluted to be able to force the camera to focus where you wanted. This is user error, plain and simple.
Marc is right. With the distance there is between the tree and the plant, neither would be in focus if there were a FF/BF issue.

wait, you mean a "gear problem" posted on the interwebs might actually be due to user error or not understanding the equipment?!?!?
Well, it is theoretically possible, even though it has never actually happened before.
