In the print engine it can and does. (But not anywhere else, you're correct.) 
In Print, there's a little box for Resolution. You can enter any value you 
want. An excellent article in Digital Photo Pro (immediate past issue, I think, 
maybe current) by Jeff Schewe, who is something of a sharpening guru, oops, 
Guru <g>. When using Epson printers, he recommends setting resolution at 720 
for smaller prints (4x6, 7x10, etc.) and 360 for larger. With Canon printers, 
switch numbers to 600 & 300. Sounds flaky, but damned if it doesn't work. I've 
tried it and LR does a smash job of making the prints.

Conventional wisdom says you can't rez files in such a promiscuous manner, but 
LR experience says differently.
