Focus point indication during playback

I am struggling to get any shots in focus when using C-AF and I suspect that I am failing to get the AF point accurately on the chosen subject when I press the shutter button. I thought I would see if I could confirm that was happening by looking at the focus point indication during playback.

Continually pressing the Info button cycles through various screens on the LCD, one of which shows a small green rectangle on the focusing point on the frame which was selected. However, many of the frames do not have the green rectangle and I am not sure why that is. Does that mean that the camera was not properly focused when I took the shot or is there another reason?

The green rectangles were rarely on top of the chosen subject, so I seems that my techique is very poor or there is a technical issue with my camera or the setup used. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what is happening?
