Ok, I had confirmation that gdm3 is somehow responsible for that: gdm3
runs gnome-session which sets the Xft.dpi property to 96. But it
shouldn't make a difference since X.org default is 96 anyway, but maybe
you change somehow, or nvidia binary driver overrides it, I have no

In any case, it's not a bug in lightdm. If you don't like the
gdm3/gnome-session behavior, I'll let you reassign.
