It is highly possible. If your site has US/UK visitors, you may not being seeing Adwords ads that are being limited to US/Canada/UK.
If you like, you can sticky me your website URL and I could browse through and let you know what kind of ads I see...

I was seeing different ads on a page to someone in a different country. I am in Spain, and they are in Scotland.
I'm not sure if this conclusively proves that there are regional differences, as they seem to be playing with the algorithm at the moment and that could have caused the different results.
It could also have been due to my ISP's cache.

Thank you for your replies.
I had a friend in the USA check it for me and she sees ads I have never seen, so it would seem the answer is that they are served in accordance with the regional settings.
She saw some that had I known they were there I would have blocked, but I won't for now anyway, they are earning too much to do so and their presence does not seem to have affected sales from our site at all.

As an adwords advertiser, the FAQ and set up suggests very strongly that all ads are regionally targeted if you use that filter, no matter whether google search, partners, or adsense sites. If Adsense ads were not, Google would have to make some very quick changes to their Adwords interface and FAQ's!
