Yes, I have had some drum scans done of 12X20 negatives, though at a lower resolution (about 1500 dpi I believe). I found them no better than the scans I make of negatives this size on my Epson 836XL.

I have printed other imagesetter negatives with a resolution of up to 850dpi. No difference in resolution between the 360dpi inkjet negatives with kallitype and palladium printing since the paper itself limits resolution to about 360lpi or less.

For silver gelatin paper on smooth papers I believe that the higher resolution imagesetter negative would make a difference.
