When to apply NR?

I've read some articles on sharpening and there are some accepted or general rules for doing so.

But just wondering if there are accepted general ways to apply NR.

Lets say we're shooting RAW.
We've imported the image into LR and added some NR.
Then export to a smaller output size.

I assume the NR is done before resampling to the smaller image or is that incorrect,

How does this compare to:
no NR adjustments in RAW.
Export to a smaller size, then applying NR.

And does it change with Chroma or Luminance NR, when this should be applied?
