It does not.
What belongs to the project is stored in the .lpi.

The codetools support the 'in' modifier and so does the lazarus IDE a
But the IDE does not update the 'in' file names and it does not have
any special consistency checks for them. So use them only if
you know what you are doing.

The converter for delphi projects supports them (fix the
file cases, adds them to the lpi).
