The overall carry weight of a hammock and the amount of fabric actually supporting your body are 2 vastly different things. Plus, there are ways to efficiently use heavier fabrics without a "weight penalty".
A comparison like this would only work for the simplest hammocks that just use a rectangular piece of fabric. Otherwise, you'd have to figure in the weight of things like zipper, suspension, netting, guylines, straps, etc.
