Subject: Resizing in RAW under the Workflow Options

When I open a full frame RAW image in the converter, I see the normal 6 megapixel option as shot on my D70. Unless I do some copping, I have additional default options of roughly 1.6, 2.8, 6, 11, 17 and 25 megapixel resize presets. As I understand it, when resampling larger, Adobe Photoshop suggests using Bicubic Smoother, and I hear to use Bicubic Sharper when resampling smaller. The only reference I have seen so far on this topic suggested resampling in the Raw converter, working from the "digital negative" instead of bringing the image into Photoshop at the default 6 megapixel size and manually resizing with the Bicubic option of my choosing.

So, after all that, my question is whether Camera Raw automatically uses Bicubic Smoother when enlarging the image (if that option is selected), and Bicubic Sharper when reducing the size?...or which kind of interpolation method does it actually use?

Any thoughts and related workflow suggestions would be appreciated.
