I think you are analyzing the matter at a different level.

If you start from a situation in which everyone is managing their own online identity and credentials, and end up in a situation in which a set of very few big companies (essentially Google, Apple and Facebook) are supplying and managing everyone's online credentials and logins, then [the deployment of] OAuth[-based public identity systems] is harming privacy.

Centralization is an inherent privacy risk. If you securely and privately deliver your personal information to parties that can monetize, track and aggregate it at scale, then you are losing privacy.
