Could be, check out the documentation of MapPublisher (version 5 and below) with regards to calculating the displacement. They had an excel file or something like that to calculate the shifting based on pt size.
If it is the anchor point that is good, but that makes me wonder then... wouldn't all Arc exported point symbols be visually mislocated since the symbol is above and to the right of the anchor?

In Illustrator you could "Create Outlines" of the symbol-font before resizing and guarantee proper placement.
I did a quick test to see what happened when you re-size. The green circles are symbol-fonts that I used the "Create Outlines" function in AI and resized to 50%. They maintained their proper position. The red circles are symbol-fonts that I resized from 16pt to 8pt. The baseline didn't shift so they were re-sized from the text anchor.
