depends where you look

The lenses are the resolution bottlenecks in the corners at most apertures while in the center you can clearly see separate pixels, indicating that they could resolve much higher pixel densities in the center of the frame.

So it's not a yes/no answer or a certain numerical limit. Increasing pixel density will continue to increase resolution, but in a smaller and smaller part of the frame. For newer, higher resolution lenses it's mostly the other way around; adding resolution in the edges and at wider apertures while the center is sensor-limited and perceived to be unchanged... until you add both.

The end limit is diffraction, limiting how much information you can gather from a certain distance through a certain size of aperture. Size of aperture, not relative aperture (f-stop value).
