Yes it's a special case. Would happen only in combination with special
images missing a resolution info. And like this it has been there for
long time. And you find it in the manual. Should be ok...

But there is some chance of confusion with \pdfimageresolution itself as
it's set most time outside the document (e. g. in the format). So if
this changes, the document would get images with different sizes. Not
very portable.
