in my parametric study the contact pressure in the solution sometimes gets scoped to the target body and sometimes to the contact body for the same contact region for different versions. Is there a way to decide on which body the contact pressure gets scoped to? The behavior of the contact region is set to program controlled.

Change the behavior from Program Controlled to Asymmetric. Then the Contact surface will be the one you defined and where the pressure is plotted. When set to Program Controlled, you allow the solver to flip Contact and Target at its discretion, and you don't want that.
