The diffence is quite remarkable and with a full frame 645 sensor the sensor area is around 2.6 times larger so it is to be expected that the resolution is much higher.

The size of a sensor is not the governing attribute that determines its resolving power.

Just like APS-C sensors resolve less detail than a full frame sensor with the same number of pixels.

Given the exact same detail presented to the sensor plane (which is the only really valid way to determine which sensor can resolve more), an 18MP Canon crop will resolve more detail than a 22MP Canon FF sensor.

I think you are considering situations where the detail presented to the sensor plane is different to begin with - something that isdue to the difference in sensor size in many situations.
