No, they are all frame-relative, so scaled by the scaling factor.

The only places currently I can think of in the "absolute" category
are the frame parameters `left' and `top', and some screen parameters
such as `display-pixel-height', etc.  Most of the values in Lisp are
designed as frame-relative.

I don't understand.  What happens if a user moved the frame to (101,
101) using the mouse under the scale factor 2, and he checked
(frame-parameter nil 'left)?
