"or some hypothetical station on the Moon, it will register more or less the same "weight".

If it is a classic 'balance' with counter-weights, sure, it measures mass minus relative densities' buoyancy correction. But, if it is a spring or force-feedback device then the weight displayed will vary according to local gravity.

D'uh, we had to fully re-calibrate laboratory balances if we moved them to a taller bench, never mind down to the production area...
