… i was not aware that you could simply link an image in a PDF document

Ah, the link is only in the ODT file. The image is always embedded within
the PDF.

large or small, resized or not.

This may be related to the perceived DPI of the original image as compared
to the DPI of the created PDF. On export you can choose Lossless
compressing, JPEG compression, and Reduce image resolution.

I have been looking only at Lossless compression and no reduction of image
resolution. Also, there is absolutely no point ever in taking a PNG image
and making it larger; that should never be done regardless.

When I look at those three combinations, I expect that no combination
allows for images to never be modified.

That's exactly what we've found. I think that images should never be
modified when choosing lossless with no change in resolution.

Maybe in the release notes?

That doesn't give the release notes for I managed to find the 4.4
release notes:
But nowhere there does it mention image compression or resolution.

Sometimes things get fixed or smoothed out 'by accident' as the devs are
working hard to clean the code up and remove any vague hint of Java.  Also
solving 1 bug-report sometimes has a "knock on effect" of accidentally
fixing other things at the same time.  It's not always worth trying to
find which weird and obscure use-cases have been fixed in this way but
hoped that users might sometimes write in somewhere and let people know.

I'd be happy to write in to let the developers know. I wouldn't know where
to do this, though.
