Why? A page is a page, no matter what the database system.

They all have slightly different internal methods for handling free
space and page chaining, but they all store data or index records on
disk in units of pages (sometimes called blocks). Large pages contain
more data and are suited to situations where large quantities of data
need to be read from disk.
