No, M size pixels are not the same size as L size pixels. Pixels are (as you indicate) mathematical creations of a complex demosaicing algorithm. The photosites used to create the M size pixels are the same size as the photosites used to create L size pixels, but there are twice as many L size pixels as M size pixels so they can't be the same size.

I think what's adding to the confusion is the ambivalent use of the word pixel. Sometimes we mean sensor photosites/sensels by writing pixels, sometimes we mean the demosaiced outcome.
