Some books ignoring margin settings?

I've noticed that some books follow the Text options (text size, margins, spacing) while some seem to have minds of their own, regardless of the fact that I have the option for Publisher Defaults disabled.

 

Here's what I mean, two different books using the same font, margin, and spacing options:

 

First, the Wool - Omnibus Edition:

Second, The Coldest War by Ian Tregillis

Is this a bug or expected behavior?  Is there any way to get all of my nook purchases to be consistent when reading on my phone?  

 

Thanks in advance for any advice!

@Radioraheem,

 

The publishers of an eBook are able to override device settings/preferences.

 

Sometimes they do this because they feel it is important to the presentation of the work.

 

Sometimes this is done in order to make the ePub display correctly/consistently on multiple readers from multiple manufacturers.

 

Unfortunately I think that most times they do this unintentionally just because they are unaware of all the options available in eBook creation.

Thank you for the information. I suspected that might be the case.
