No, but it does modify the apparent size. I've on many occasions, after scanning in something at 300dpi, thought the image was properly sized only to find the zoom at 67% or less. From what was described in the OP, it sounds as if he hasn't adjusted for zoom, so when he pastes he gets an image larger then expected. I've copy/pasted images into and out of GIMP since 1.x (I forget the version number I started out with, but it's been several years now) and the problem he described sounds exactly like he's not taking into account zoom level when describing the size of the image in GIMP. GIMP automatically tries to fit the image into the editing window via lowering the zoom to less then 100%. Also, he never indicates he measured the image. He only said he scanned in at 300dpi.
