This is what I discovered thanks to your question:

R5 : (1987-93)
Aperture priority + spot: 90%
Aperture priority + average:5%
Manual (spot): 5%

R7 : (1993-97)

R8 : (1997-98)
Program + multi-pattern : 60%
Program + spot : 38%
Manual 2%
But I always play with the shutter speed wheel
in order to customize the program.
N.B. I think that in the future the % of spot
will continue to decrease in favor of the multi-pattern
because my trust in the latter is growing.
