If you compare a ~35mm lens at f/4 on DX to a 50mm lens at f/4 on FX you will also notice the same depth of field.

That's not correct a 35mm f/4 APS-C is equivalent to 54mm f/6.1 lens on FF. From both lenses you get the same FOV, DOF, and SNR.

That's also not true unless you change the subject distance and CoC one vs the other. If you keep the subject distance the same and use the same CoC the DoF will differ in your example

Nope, the subject distance doesn't change for equivalent lenses.

I did the math...may have gotten wrong of course... but keeping subject distance/CoC equal in your example...the DoF is not the same.

As I mentioned in cut out portion of the previous post, COC at the focal plane is inversely proportional to the crop factor. It's obvious as you have to enlarge smaller image proportionally more.

There is a Wikipedia article on the subject: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_of_confusion
