The Xsun* servers do not look at the XF86Config file because they're not
XFree86 servers.  They are based on older code.

XFree86 4.0.1 has drivers for at least some of the hardware supported by
the old Xsun* servers.

Finally, you can use the "xdpyinfo" to determine what resolution (and color
depth) the X server is actually running at.
