Do you understand why D800E has 1 stop more exposure than D810 at ISO12K and 25K, therefore will show less noise?

The image noise is due to the low light (less exposure), NOT high ISO.

Unless the linked comparison show the respective exposure, it's not a meaningful comparison.

Moreover, if the camera adds in camera noise reduction for the expanded ISO to the raw file, you really don't know what you are comparing.

Best to compare the native ISO only.
