From my understanding, its "supposed to". Sadly if you ask people that have invested alot into a node they have not really seen alot of difference.

I've seen more difference with the grade you get on knowledge of enemies, i.e. my helms shield is at Srank and he drops stones quite frequently, but I have a c on some of the others there and they've dropped far less frequently

I've never noticed a difference between investing in a node and not. Mob knowledge makes a difference in how fast you kill and the quality of loot you get, though, so it's worth it to park an alt at the library in Calpheon so you can reset any low-grade knowledge.

It really is hard to say.  It 'feels' like I receive better processing and cooking results in a high level node.  It also seems like I get more rare gathers in a leveled node.  As per luck, I have had 5 luck for about as long as I can remember so I don't know.  Because it's all difficult to tell I will just continue to hedge my bets and do most my stuff in high node locations.

id do that if getting their knowledge has a bit  of a higher rate.. it like takes me an hour for a monster knowledge for every one of them, even with glasses equipped

it's based on rng, you can't reason with it.

what's more, let's suppose the drop rate being 0.000001 and even if you increased by 10% from investing nodes, you won't feel the difference at all.
