All the labels in civil 3D are scaled per Freeport scale or If in model space per drawing scale. If they look big, regen the drawing and they should be the correct size after the regen. If they are not you may want to check to see what your viewport scale is set at.

 

You would also want to make sure that in your styles that the text size is set to what you want,  real world. Text will scale per your drawing or viewport scale.

"All the labels in civil 3D are scaled per Freeport scale . . . "

 

I assume you meant VIEWPORT scale.
