You are absolutely right

For a constant sensor size and same lens, the best predictor of image quality is how recent the sensor design is; newer sensors are better than older ones. Newer sensors also tend to have more pixels.

A lot of people still mistakenly believe that having more, smaller pixels leads to less noise and dynamic range. You know better, so you may now ignore these people.
