It would be big endian.
If you think about the final image and for argument sake think of a sensor the size of a postage stamp and another one the size of a postcode.

And you want to make an equal sized print out of them (say 10x8).

The lens in front of the postage stamp image will need to resolve far more detail than the lens in front of the postcard sensor because to produce the final image the detail will have to be increased by a far greater number of times than the postcard sized sensor.

Plus any aberrations will  be magnified to a greater degree

It doesn't matter whether the image is made up of pixels or analogue film the results are the same.

So a relatively poorly resolving lens on the postcard sized sensor will outperform a high performing lens on the postage stamp sized sensor.

The principle is the same on the lenses that are used on m43 compared to the lenses that are used on FF though obviously not to the same degree.
