In some campgrounds larger sites are more expensive. If you put a small RV in a big site, you still have the whole site so there's no reason for you to pay any less. At a dock, if a longer boat takes more of the dock, of course you would pay for more, but I've never seen a campground that puts RVs along a curb, each taking an amount dependent on RV length.

Sure, more space takes more light, and if you are running air conditioning that takes a lot more power for more space... but cooking and entertainment consumption have nothing to do with the amount of space. My trailer doesn't have an air conditioner - should I pay less for the same site?
Certainly a bigger space doesn't mean that any more water is needed. More people
likely means more water, and campgrounds often have extra charges for more than a couple of people... regardless of the RV size, because a family of four can be in an Escape 17 while it may only be a couple in a big motorhome.
