Thanks Bob. Reading verbatim from the link you provided:

"In general for a planar structure such as a pixel, capacitance is proportional to area, therefore the read noise scales down with sensor area, as long as pixel area scales with sensor area, and that scaling is performed by uniformly scaling the pixel."

Which is exactly the opposite of what noirdesir stated citing you.
