On Page Text - Is Linked Text Different From Not Linked Text?
As far as google is concerned?

For example, suppose you have have a paragraph linked in one page, and the same paragraph not linked in another, would one rate higher, with all other things being equal?

This is an example, so don't ask why would you have it ;)

I'm talking about keyword density, similarity, and other on page related factors.

That depends on where it links to.

If it links to an authority site (with respect to the keyword(s), topic of the page etc.), yes (usually).

If it links to a 'bad neighbourhood', no. You may even be penalized.

Understood. Will Google count that text when it comes to calculating keyword density or page similarity?
If let's say 25% of the unique text from each page is linked, will that count so Google doesn't think the pages are too similar?
