Sure, there are one or two cases where the pixel size is pushed a little above the optimum for that pixel design - a good case is the Sony 24MP APS-C, which is a bit worse performer than the 16MP

I am not so sure if this is even case as withing the the Sony camera families the 24Mp seems to perform at least as well as the 16Mp one plus the resolution advantage.

The difference is subtle, it is slightly higher shadow noise, unless you look into the deep shadows, you don't see it.

Though there is one issue is made more significant by the finer pixel pitch - with near symmetrical lenses there will be more significant magenta color cast near the edges and potential for detail smearing.

Yes, if you can't reduce the stack height in proportion to the pixel size, that is a problem - which is why the manufacturers are moving towards copper interconnect.
