D800 image in CS6 - Pixel Dimensions vs Displayed values of Width and Height

I am puzzled by what CS6 is showing me regarding size of two images shot with D800. In the first case the image was shot with an FX lens, and in the second case with a DX lens with camera set auto DX crop. The sizes of the two resulting NEF files are understandably very different.

However, when I bring them up in CS6 and click on Image Size they both show Pixel Dimensions of 34.4M, and Width 4240 Height 2830 . WxH approximately equals 12M. I would appreciate an explanation of this seeming conflict.
