Yes, still wondering the same...

In particular, the "Wikipedia proposition" appears to be that the higher voltage that results from lower capacitance photodiodes (per pixel area), results in decreased read noise. Presumably this occurs as a consequence of amplifier noise becoming a significant contributor to total read noise? High ISO (for sensor area)?

Noise from various amplifiers is the major component of read noise.
