That looks like horrendous analysis of data to me, a clear block of data with an outlier in the top right. This chart shows how much of an anomaly the 737 is with its weight growth. Even if the 737 was left in i doubt the data shows anything g statistically significant.

The A340 saw around a 50% increase with the early A340 at 254t to 380 t in less than 15 years.

And the 777 family has seen a similar ~50% increase between the 230,000kg of the 777-200 and 352,000kg of the 777-300ER. There was a 25% increase just between the 777-200 and 777-200ER.

A340 to A340NG, 777-200 to 777-300ER (over various stations), 737-100 to 797-900 or MAX10.

All shew massive revamps of the design. "Not a single fastener stayed unchanged" :-)

compare to a basically unchanged frames like the A330-2/300 or A340-2/300
or weight growth in A320 series for esentially the same frame with very minor adaptions.

Not meaningfully comparable.
