Because it is the number of photons that make up the photo, not the exposure, that determine the noise in a photo:

Errm, I was talking about lens 'speed'/aperture, not sensors or noise!


Whereas I was talking about how "lens 'speed'/aperture" relates to the visual properties of the final photo. I had assumed that the point was photography, not numbers out of context.

There are many factors that relate to "the visual properties of the final photo".

You can talk about anything else you like, including what you had for breakfast, but it won't affect that fact that the the lens aperture is purely a physical property of the lens, and nothing else!
