Why do people say a brushless motor runs cooler than brushed?

This is for crawling speeds.

Same can size (lets pick 550) and same motor quality on 3S with same gearing in the same truck.

I imagine if the motors were geared for the task, shouldn’t both stay a similar temp?

I know high speed can increase brushed motor temps with more brush friction and arcing and the brushless motor will rev harder but why would brushless supposedly run cooler for slow stuff?

If you’re applying similar levels of torque I would have thought in this example it would be similar enough not to be an easily noticeable difference.
