Indeed it would. Those most likely to be caught out by the regulations would be people on the margins of the bakery trade who were less experienced and less well equipped to ensure that their loaves were the precise weight required. Perhaps your ancestor was a bit down on his luck and hoped to make a few extra pennies making and selling home baked bread. If this was the case, it would not have been surprising if the weights and measures inspectors were tipped off by the local baker who didn't want his trade affected by the upstart amateur.
