You only will get the aps-c size cut from the sensor, so you might as well just stick with an aps-c sensor camera.
Is this a guess or something confirmed by Pentax? I will have a menu option to turn off auto cropping when using APS-C lenses on a Pentax FF body. Besides, the camera cant know if the Samyang 8mm f/3,5 is made for APS-C or not. Its a lens without electronic contacts.

Er.... no. On-sensor PDAF photodiods are neither some kind of filter nor an add-on in front of the sensor. They are part of the sensor, engraved in silicon.
Its an add-on to the color filter array. Its practically a pair of pixels where half the pixels is blocked (left half of one pixel and right half of the other). The color filter array is between the micro lenses and the silicon sensor. I'm not shure witch side of the color filter array the half pixel shades are, but its not engraved in silicon. Aside from the light loss the PDAF-pixels are constructed just like other pixels. The camera might choose a faster sampling rate of these pixels.

With those lenses and old lenses you will use the while sensor and some times get the nice vignetting.

No, it's part of the sensor layer, not part of the "toppings" (anti-reflection coating, UV filter coating (if used), IR filter coating, AA filter (if used), microlenses, Bayer CFA (if used)) that are placed on top of the sensor.

Image Sensors World: Canon Announces Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology

You could have Dual Pixel CMOS AF without an CFA.
