Typographic convention defines the relative size of each text type. And it
can be changed.

Look at Document -> Settings -> Fonts. You can change almost everything,
including the default family and size. The KOMA-script classes use sans
serif fonts for all headings so you can fiddle with all these to get what
you want. For sans serif and typewriter there are widgets to set the size
separate from that of the body text. Perhaps changing the default family and
size to specific values will allow you to change the size of the sans serif
headings, too. (The sizes are greyed out on my documents because I use the
default family, size, and encoding.)
