The vertical misalignment will have no bearing on the focus but there may be a horizontal misalignment - these are only obvious by their effect on focus.
So ideally, notes would include intended focus point plus estimated (or directly measured) distance, as well as what the lens marks indicate (these in themselves may not be correct), then when you are comparing the results you can see what the focus WAS on (this is where a slatted background at near distance is helpful - marked distances from the film plane also mean you don't have to recheck the measures.)
While this type of photography is not at all useful for impressing friends, it certainly aids getting the focus sorted, which in the end makes impressing people easier :-)
PS if you want to check for focus shift you can do so, but really that is a later exercise. You want the lens as open as possible - low numbers/wide open aperture - for the initial testing.
