Mostly that you have to catch the arguments you want to use/replace, e.g.

levelplot(z~x+y|site, data = aaa, panel = function(..., z, at) {

          panel.levelplot(..., z = z, at = quantile(z)) })

This won't actually give you want, you will need:

levelplot(z~x+y|site, data = aaa, panel = function(..., z, subscripts, at) {

          panel.levelplot(..., z = z, subscripts = subscripts, at = quantile(z[subscripts])) })

?panel.levelplot should explain why.
