When I don't know, I try. Firefox does not seem to be taking it with
such good precision as 0.1 pt (as might look at the page suggest),
however OO.org does (see attached screen-shot). And it is pretty much
the same when you play with the settings and look at the (shorter)
preview in the appearances caplet in advanced font settings (I did this
for sizes ranging from 8.0 pt to 9.0 pt and there are at least 6 notable
changes during the change for 98 DPI), so I believe pretty every gnome
app would use correct size, even if it is beyond screen resolution.

So this part of your question could be answered completely: yes, GNOME
fully supports discrete sizes regardless DPI.
