Does the medical community really think children under 10 “rarely spread the virus”?

If so, what are the specific proposed anatomical and/or physiological mechanisms for this?

Is it purely due to smaller lung volumes? Shorter stature putting their noses closer to the ground? I have heard someone guess that maybe there are fewer ACE2 receptors in the nasal mucosa in children, but I’m fairly certain that was just a guess.
