Spelling check strangeness?

I'm using Scrivener 3, and the spelling check does not catch things that should be spelling errors:

For example, w'ere and d'ont don't trigger a red underline.

Similarly individual letters all by themselves like 'z' or 'w'.

I believe this is shared behaviour across Mac apps. i.e. it's a macOS thing.

fyi: For me, d'ont is marked as an error, whereas w'ere is not. ere is valid word, so that's not a surprise. (This is for all apps.)

Oddly, Firefox is marking w'ere as an error and d'ont as okay ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
