Yeah, shot noise does not matter.

Not much at base ISO, no.

Much more than EV=0.6 difference in DR.

As I said, if you have an example to the contrary, please provide it.

Here, different SS (the pics on the right have slightly smaller EVs) but anyway:

#1: The 6D is worse in deep blues due to the Canon specific blue filters. The Nikons are visibly better.

#2: Warmer tones: all FFs are better.

#3: FF better again, even the 6D in the blue color.

The m43 shot is not detailed enough. You can blame the diffraction for that but the noise is also blurred. This tells me that detail extraction, and noise, in the FF cases is more aggressive.
