It is complicated the way snap to grid/set grid, scaling and zoom in/out works, it's all to do with the screen resolution.

The smallest movement that can be made is 1/72th of an inch (there are 72 pixels per inch on the screen) so the smallest snap to grid can only be a number which is less then 72, equally divisible into scaled units.

At 1:1 scale, the increments are 64th of an inch (the screen is 72 dpi so the nearest whole equally divisible number is 64. If you up the scale to say 3" = 1' (1:4), this decreases to 32, at 1 1/2" = 1' (1:8) it is 1/16th.
