There are a lot of people out there and a lot of them here in particular, so I bet that sometimes is the case. But for it to be your main or only hypothesis here... I don't think that's the most logical one, and something feels like it is being convoluted. People wanting rules to be applied equally is only wanting things to be fair, logical and consistent. There is likely nothing more to it than that most of the time. And it doesn't in itself hint at some issue on their own part like "envy."
I know the very subject here is "perception," but to me this sounds like the kind of perception-framing you always advise *against* doing (making "it" about someone else rather than about oneself or the actual subject).
