When you shoot with equivalent FL's, you do shoot from the same distance.

"Equivalent lenses" is a bit of an oxymoron when you think about it. I can't think of a single pair of 'equivalent' lenses that would be suitable for determining the resolving power of a sensor.

We are not talking about that, whatever that means. The question was why similar lenses perform better in the DXO tests on FF bodies - which they do. The explanation is - DXO measures basically medium contrast, and then FF wins due to less enlargement. The extinct resolution of the sensor plays very little role for that specific metric.
