etex itself can't specify the media size, but  if you process the dvi with
dvips or dvipdfm etc then that is
affected by the default page size configuration for those drivers.

I wish there was a simple yes/no answer in this thread but there is a lot
of history here unfortunately.
That said I don't think any of this has changed recently.
