I'm not sure how you reach that conclusion, since the function takes all of the
randomly generated points and calculates the center point and radius of a single
best-fitting sphere.   It fits a sphere to the data, not the other way around.

Excellent.  Maybe Matlab can process mesh vertices / point clouds too?
