Not exactly if speaking of inkjet-printers.

The printerdriver separates the input to CMYK (or more colours,
depending on printer) and produces rasterized data from that (a
frequency modulated pattern normally). It then sends the pattern
data to the printer. This has nothing to do with upscaling to
"native resolution" wich btw refers to the positioning accuracy of
the printheads. Printed resolution depends on the size of ink drops
and the raster algorythms used and is MUCH lower than advertized.

Günter, you just repeated what I said, just in other words. Printers are not printing pixels we see on the monitor, but smaller particle of different size and colors that looks like it from the distance.
The point is that image size, pixelwise, is changed.
