Does someone having a lean body mass of 150 with ten pounds of fat burn less calories than a person with lean body mass of 120 and 80 pounds of fat?

Exaggerations for example, but I find this might be an inaccuracy in determining one's maintenance calories. More muscles means burn more calories, don't know if fat burns any.

Someone that weights 200 lbs will burn more calories than someone that weighs 160 lbs.
