Virtually all of STO's size discrepancies are intentional, either for playability or aesthetic purposes.

DS9 is big because it's a hub and big hubs are more impressive. The Dominion Dreadnaught is too small because its true size would be ludicrous for a player ship. Most of the game's Escorts, Fed-side at any rate, are slightly larger than they ought to be for, and shuttle are gargantuan because if they were accurate, they'd be specks on the screen next your Odyssey.

Then there's the Defiant which is a clusterfrak of biblical proportions regarding its... proportions.
