z7 and z6 large and medium files.

I posted a similar question in the Open forum, but I'm really interested in the Z7 so maybe I should have started here.

The "Medium" file size on the Z7 is about the same (height by width) pixels as the "Large" file size on the Z6.  It has been noted that the Z6 (large) files have less noise than the Z7 (large files).

1. Would it be true (to a close approximation) that the Z7 medium files would have about the same noise as the Z6 large files?

2. Does it matter if we're talking about raw or jpeg?

3. Could I replicate the Nikon Z7 medium files (approximately) by downsampling (bicubic or whatever) a large file in Photoshop?  (i.e., is that basically what Nikon is doing when creating the medium file?)

Thanks.
