Actually, large rear element close to sensor potentially causes more problems with vignetting and color shifts than a small one would.

why?

Tradisionally I spose you would link a larger rear element to a larger aperture and the extra optical issues that would create but in this case I'd guess were looking at something very different. The rear element is likely being used to alter the angle the light is hitting the sensor and obviously having a rear element as close in size to the sensor as possible makes it easier to have the light hitting it as perpendicular as possible.
