a7 IV shooting 4k60 mode

IF all the guesses on the forthcoming a7 IV are correct can someone explain what this means?

"4k 60p will be oversampled from 4.8k s35 mode"

I saw someone elsewhere commenting on how a crop shooting 4k60 isn't good but any video mode is a crop of the full 36 x 24 sensor, right? How is this crop different?

I'm on the fence and leaning heavily towards purchasing immediately but the new menu system, so it's the same as my a7s III, and 4k60 shooting are the main draws so if it's gonna give me a large crop when shooting 4k60, turning my 16-35 into a 24-70 then that's likely a deal breaker.
