I would assume native resolution matters insofar as it affects final output no matter how you set your Camera RAW ppi. It your camera's native resolution is 180 ppi and you work with a default setting of, say, 240 ppi in ACR, wouldn't you in effect be uprezing? I ask. I don't know.

I don't think ACR/PhotoShop care about ppi, I assume it will work with the original, until the user changes it.

PPI only matters when printing and I don't mean standard home printers.  It is usually professional high-quality large-size printers that will read that value off of the EXIF and work with it.
