gravity is a function of mass, however the way it is taught in even entry level physics does not take into account that an object is not consistently
of one mass, and has variations of density within it, and the general weak force of gravity is very simplified in the standard equation taught.
For instance if say, the earth were hollow, and had a tunnel cut straight through if you jumped down that hole you would eventually stop and float
generally in the middle, as you would be pulled equally in all directions (neglecting outside gravitation forces like the sun and moon).
So now lets say you are standing next to a massive mountain of lead and a massive mountain of aluminum but you are still standing on earth itself.
Both mountains have the same volume, but the mass of the lead is far greater. You could measure specifically that you were attracted towards the
mountain of lead more so than the mountain of aluminum, while still being planted firmly on the ground since the earth itself is more massive than
that lead mountain. However that does not negate the mass of that mountain.

This is called gravity anomaly btw
