Is this the same as saying all f2 lenses transmit the same amount of light, but different sensor sizes collect different total amounts for the same exposure?

No, all f/2 lenses transmit the same light intensity (illuminance), but the total light is the illuminance multiplied by the sensor area, so different sensor sizes collect different total amounts for the same exposure.

Thank you, this is now getting clearer.
