I agree though that at a lean weight it would be more unlikely, but if the person was somewhat overweight, then it would be more likely.
You hear of people complaining that the scale appears not to be moving, but when they say they are getting a thinner waist and heavier lifts, it makes sense. More strength, replacing less fat, equalling the same weight, but different body composition.
Though I agree if the person was for example 12% fat, then gaining muscle would be likely to add weight, either from the muscle or from some additional fat too.
