To better understand 48MP vs. 12MP, I ran some tests, including taking a picture of a Siemens Star Test Chart (investigate aliasing).
Strangely, the 12MP mode creates artifacts (strange dots) within the Siemens Star, while 48MP was clean.
To make the dot artifacts better visible, the 12MP image below was magnified to 400% and 48MP to 200%.

Does anyone know the reason? The dot artifacts appear only inside the Siemens star, I do not observe them anywhere else in the image. It looks as if the special pattern triggered some bugs in RAW preparation within the drone. I have verified that the artifacts are not caused by Adobe demosaicing.

What you are seeing is moire, it happens on all cameras. If you shoot the same pattern with a high priced DLSR you will get the same effect.

The aliasing that you talk about is a different issue.
I am talking about the colored dots spread all over the Siemens Star, but only in the 12MP version.

Sorry, I missed that in your initial post. The only thing I can guess at is that something has gone wrong with the dead pixel mapping, and it only shows up in RAW mode.

Strangely it occurs only within the Siemens Star, which is a very small part of the picture, and nowhere outside the Siemens Star. To me it seems as the regular chart structure triggered a bug in the binning algorithm.

This pops up on this test too..  

For 48MP I have found taking three shots and applying a median stack (affinity/photoshop) gets rid of it but also really good results using Topaz Denoise with Colour Noise Slider increased. Good luck!
