If you stand on a scale that says you're weight is 98kg, does that mean the scale is tellign you you weigh 98kg * m/sec^2? which inevitably means your mass is 10kg? (ok not using real world numbers here). It seems like scales weigh Force because in an elevator going down, your weight changes if your under an acceleration (and if you have ever put your arm on something while being weighed, you know your weight decreases).
So actually, what im asking is if scale's #'s are fixed (divided by 9.8) to show mass instead of your weight
