Unfortunately not, although I think what the person who told you this might be meaning is that the higher dixel density on some crop sensors means that for the same focal length lens will produce a larger file than a FF cropped to the same size however if the field of view effect is removed by using an equivalent focal length (i.e. 100mm & 160mm) the image captured would be the same and thereforethe sensor with the highest MP count would produce the larger image file.
So it's more a feature of the FOV on a sensor which is already cropped. Of course if you have to crop the FF image to match that of the crop sensor the pixel count will decrease, and that might be what you've been told?
