I'm becoming less and less optimistic about Sigma developing any new Foveons.

Fortunately the Panasonic DC-S5 exists. It is the only full frame camera out there that does not have phase focus pixels. I can get the best image quality from this kind of sensor (Foveon is much better of course).

Which L Mount uses phase detect?

Since Leica has re-badged a Panasonic, my guess is no L Mount uses phase detect (so far).

All the other full frame cameras out there do use phase detect though, and this can cause a slight occasional drop in image quality and sometimes gridding.

See DPR video below at 9:20 - 9:30 for a very quick mention of this:
