What were you expecting? Note
In[52]:= Function[x, 2][{1, 2}]
Out[52]= 2
since this function replaces any argument with 2. But
In[53]:= Function[x, 0 x + 2][{1, 2}]
Out[53]= {2,2}
since this function multiplies the list by 0 then adds 2 which
means the result will have the same number of elements as the
input when the input is a list.
Perhaps you meant to map the function to only level 2 rather
than levels 1 through 2? That is
In[54]:= Map[Function[x, 2], {{1, 2}, {1, 2}}, {2}]
Out[54]= {{2, 2}, {2, 2}}
