I've tested it out empirically and I can say that there seems to be a definite difference when standing on an "8" location.
I repeat, you're imagining things. Here's the complete source code for the acquirement function:

void acquirement(int y1, int x1, int level, int num, bool great)
  object_type *i_ptr;
  object_type object_type_body;
  /* Acquirement */
  while (num--)
    /* Get local object */
    i_ptr = &object_type_body;
    /* Wipe the object */
    /* Make a good (or great) object (if possible) */
    if (!make_object(cave, i_ptr, level, TRUE, great, TRUE, NULL, 0)) continue;
    i_ptr->origin = ORIGIN_ACQUIRE;
    i_ptr->origin_depth = p_ptr->depth;
    /* Drop the object */
    drop_near(cave, i_ptr, 0, y1, x1, TRUE);
And here's the definition for the effects of the Acquirement and *Acquirement* scrolls:

  acquirement(py, px, p_ptr->depth, 1, TRUE);
  *ident = TRUE;
  return TRUE;
  acquirement(py, px, p_ptr->depth, randint1(2) + 1, TRUE);
  *ident = TRUE;
  return TRUE;
Note the use of p_ptr->depth, i.e. the player's current dungeon level, as the only level determinant.
