They definitely do. Lighter lifters have better 3 lift total ratios compared to bodyweight, but face much tighter ceiling limitations.

Men's Raw American Records

Here are the USAPL raw records:

114 lbs - 788 pound total
123 lbs - 842 pound total
132 lbs - 1251 pound total
148 lbs - 1289.5 pound total
165 lbs - 1477 pound total
181 lbs - 1537.5 pound total
198 lbs - 1603.75 pound total
220 lbs - 1708.5 pound total
242 lbs - 1736 pound total
275 lbs - 1850 pound total
275+ lbs - 2061.25 pound total

It is of note that there are large total jumps at heavier weights, so the total jumps are much more linear in nature than 3 lift total is to bodyweight.

The difference between the lightest and heaviest classes is 1273.25 pounds. This works out to an average jump of 127.325 pounds per class.

The difference between the 165 pound class and heaviest classes is 584.25 pounds. This works out to an average jump of 97.325 pounds per class.

The difference between the 198 pound class and heaviest classes is 457.5 pounds. This works out to an average jump of 114.375 pounds per class.

Obviously statistics can lie, but I think these numbers paint an interesting snapshot of how important weight is to maximal strength, and how gains remain fairly consistent from class to class.

That is undeniable, and leaves most pound-for-pound comparisons by the wayside as they will always favour the lighter man. A much more accurate model is the Wilks Formula.
