They are probably not really applying unsharp mask, but there are
interpolation methods that do something similar. The Lanczos method in
GIMP has this quality. The Sinc kernel used for interpolation works
somewhat similar to what Unsharp Mask does. Still it is sometimes
necessary to do additional sharpening after scaling.
