is that the D800 at f/16 produces more resolution than the D700 at any aperture.

No, not at ANY aperture... look at the charts again. Never the less, it is no surprise, the D800 has 3x the number of pixels on the same area, so of course it must produce higher resolution images with the same lens.

Nikon 50mm f/1.4 on D700 highest res looks to be almost 750 center and almost 650 corner at f/8. On the D800 @ f/16 it appears to be around 825 center and 700 corner. So, if you compare center to center or corner to corner then rubank is correct. The D700 center is only slightly ahead of the D800 f/16 corner.
