i thought what they said was generally true. the rotors are bigger usually in diameter and thickness so often heavier. the calipers are also usually of larger size but of lighter weight material. Pads end up being heavier as well because they are larger covering a larger swept area. you get more thermal capacity and larger stopping power with a slight weight loss. there is a thread comparing weight of each kit somewhere here.
