What you describe is not a bug, (but...) :

ae (virtual) fonts use cmr-7bits at driver level, and in ss family,
cmr-7bits does not exist at 500-design size, so 800 is used...

ec fonts 0500 design-size exists and is used in sffamily (tfm, mf, and/or
cm-super type1).

What may be compared is \tiny\sffamily with cm-super and with ec-family mf
fonts (suppress or comment the entry in the map for testing) : it will be
the same (and may be ugly, yes...).

You could also try this (just for a test, if you want it for a constant
usage, better to define a new family) :

   <-9> ecss0800
   <9-10> ecss0900
   <10-12> ecss1000
   <12-17> ecss1200
   <17-> ecss1728
\tiny\sffamily This is a short sentence in cm-super.
This is a short sentence using ae-fonts.
