Generally there will be a variation in load depending on what state
compaction happens to be in on the given node (I am assuming you're
not using leveled compaction). That is in addition to any imbalance
that might result from your population of data in the cluster.

Running repair can affect the live size, but *lack* of repair won't
cause a live size divergence.
