Why does no one talk about degree of enlargement vs sensor size?

long ago before digital people saw larger film sizes as better because they had to be enlarged less for any given size of print. Since lenses aren’t unlimited in how fine of detail they can resolve and detail is physically larger on larger film, enlargements from larger film were superior.

No one seems to care about that with digital though, and I’m not sure why. Instead, people talk about the ability of larger sensors to “gather more light” which apparently can be compensated for by using faster lenses with the smaller sensors. I don’t see what the difference is with digital.
