Topic: Acrobat and jpeg compression

I am trying to solve a puzzle here, please help.
A user on my system created a Word document that is ~43 MB. When it was converted to a PDF using Acrobat Distiller, the resulting PDF is ~54 MB. The word document contains a lot of images which are obtained by:
1 - Acrobat -> File -> Import -> Scan
2 - image is scanned by HP 740c
3 - Acrobat -> File -> Save As -> image1.jpeg
4 - Open up Word -> Insert -> Picture -> From File
5 - Select scanned image
We have other Word documents within the system that are about the same size and content. The images in these documents are scanned using a different scanner and via the scanner's application directly. The resulting PDFs of these documents are usually under 5KB.
Q: Does Acrobat use any type of compression when saving images as JPEGs?
Q: Does Distiller treat Acrobat JPEGs any different from JPEGs created from other applications?
Thank you in advance for your help,
