Video: Does 4k = better lowlight in downsampling

After racking my brain on the best low-light camera to use for shooting guerilla style video at my weddings (I am a wedding DJ) I ended up in a strange place with a camcorder. The Panasonic HC-VX981 seemed to offer the best bang for the buck when it came to low-light shooting. Also having no hard stop at 30 minutes of recording certainly helps and the battery life is so much better than my 70D or my previous low light camera the RX100ii.

So one thing I am wondering. More so mathematically and theoretically. If I shoot in 4k, and use NR in something like FCPX, does having 4x the information on a video offer a better chance for each frame to have the best chance for reducing noise in my final render? Or am I just wasting drive space since the information itself is just additional noise for it to compensate for?
