There's a LR plugin for a range of cameras but not for Sony AFAIK.

But you can open a Sony ARW or JPEG and have the lock points revealedk.

Method 1

Sony AF point visualizer - a standalone program.

You need the program and EXIFTOOL.EXE in the same folder.

Instructions, program and link to EXIFTOOL here:

Method 2

Includes the A9.
Also shows eye AF point on some bodies.
This is easier than method 1.
