Maybe this is a problem which not only affects my model, but also other (Fuji) cameras?
Any information about this would be appreciated.
I'm afraid this is going to be kind of a dumb answer. But maybe it will spark a response from someone who knows better. I have an older Fuji camera that I don't use anymore. In fact, it's buried somewhere in my daughter's garage. But I remember that I was getting weird pixel counts and asked questions about it. And the answer was that basically Fuji was reporting the pixel count differently. Something about splitting the pixels. I'm sorry I can't be more specific than that. It was several years ago, and a lot of things have changed since then. So maybe that issue doesn't apply anymore. Come on, someone. Help this person out.
Thanks for your reply:

When I'm using the "Image Capture" application of my Mac to transfer the pictures from my camera to my computer, "4608 × 3456" is displayed in the preview window.
Also, when I use that supplied (by Fuji, with the camera) "RAW FILE CONVERTER EX powered by SILKYPIX" appliction to convert RAW to TIFF, I get "4608 × 3456" files - ONLY the Adobe DNG converter reduces the size as specified above.
But I would prefer the DNG files.
As long as you are getting the full image I don't think I would worry about it. It's a little oddities like this and other things that have convinced me not to use DNG unless it's absolutely necessary to have support for a certain camera. This could be some kind of anomaly that will be resolved in a later version. Only time will tell.

It's beginning to convince me too, because I don't want to lose resolution.
I found this info on http://www.apple.com/aperture/specs/ :
"DNG files must be generated by the Adobe DNG Converter with the “Convert to Linear Image” option turned off."
How can I turn this option off?
Found it. Was already off.
Another thing: When comparing the JPG with the DNG (cropped to the same size) I noticed that there is some deformation in the border areas. Why does this happen?
