Yes, I've discovered that myself recently when pixel peeping too much with my E-M1 files.  The outdoors atmosphere/sky does indeed introduce that 'noisy' look to some extent.  If I go inside and shoot my table, the files are clean as can be at ISO 200.  So yes, there's certainly something about the sky that does make certain images look noisy to some extent.  I would bet if you go indoors and do some test shots in good light at ISO 200, you'll find the files are very clean.
