On a surface level, I agree that junior devs have more apparent benefits to pairing. But I think that seniors can also get something out of it other than the occasional "oh I didn't think of that".

Understanding the thought process of your colleagues, spreading out knowledge so you don't become a liability, and not disconnecting from the team on a technical level are I think relevant to seniors who are aiming for a leading role. (Am not yet 1 myself tho so don't quote me 😆)
