Not so, because we are considering the case where we are capturing the same image on a large sensor, with lots of photons, or on a small chunk of sensor with proportionally fewer photons. You’d need a proportionally smaller focal length lens to get the same angle of view of course.

What does having a different type of a lens have to do with sensor SNR?

I'm sure this has been covered already, but if you want to take photos with a large and a small sensor, with the same angle of view, you'll need different focal lengths.
