Default a question about sails

A question for expert/instructors.
I've seen that using about the same sail but in larger size, I.e. switching to HSM Stealth 8,5 from 1999 to HSM Stealth 9,5 from 2003, the Serenity is more balanced in the nose, I mean the nose is kept more down especially when wind is increasing; and this in the same mast track position.
Why this? I thought that the bigger the sail the more back the centre of push (don't now the name).
So my suspect is that this incredible and so different board with lower winds loves better little smaller sails, as you can handle better and board stay balanced, the more the wind the BIGGER the sail is better (obviopusly up to his natural limit of 10-12 knots)....
