Are you sure you're looking at the same FIELD of research ?
Different fields have different RP gain multipliers (possible values 1, 2 or 3), but the datacore costs are also proportional (50, 100, 150 RP).
So, yes, it is completely possible (actually, highly likely) to have a L3 agent in a field like spaceship engineering giving more RP/day than a L4 agent in a field like mechanical engineering.
Also, your relevant science skill level matters too.
