It is called resizing (resampling). They make it sound as some invention. Any camera that I know of does it but not necessarily from 40mp.

It depends on how they do it. For example "binning" is another way of combining data from multiple detectors to get a lower resolution image with less noise than the original. And if they've come up with a way of combining signals at very low level to give a very "clean" result, it could give better results than resampling the image file.

Software binning is just resizing with one of the worst algorithms (but there are worse). Hardware binning is very unlikely because it would give 9.5, 4.2 and 2.34mp images which is not the case.
