Are you able to elaborate on this statement? I am not understanding what this means.

This seems to a language confusion.
I think he means that the EM-5 set to the aspect ratio of 4:3 is using the full area of its sensor. If you set it to 3:2 then it would use a bit less.
FF or "full frame" conventionally means cameras that use the 135 format of film or sensor, approx 24*36mm. (In Nikon terms that means FX lenses, or their new Z mount.)

I typically use FF to refer to the size of a 24x36 sensor. I have never seen the term used to describe using the sensor in its native format (i.e. not cropped for a different format).
