Should be easy enough to science if no one has the answer.

Done!

Nope, the things have to be on the same z-level.

When I built zoo cages, traps, statues on a wall and had dwarves meet below, no admiring thoughts appeared (the builder was excluded from the test group). The duration of this test was one season. However marching a group of dwarves over a set of the same buildings at ground level instantly granted those thoughts.

I believe the total value of the well (chain + bucket) is observed and admired (or not) at the top part, regardless of where the bucket is
