how lilo addresses disk

I believe lilo remembers -- in some way -- just where on the hard disk
it should find the files it needs, rather than using the file system at
boot time.  What I'm wondering is whether it remembers something like
absolute sector numbers that could address the whole disk, ot a partition
number and a sector number relative to the start of the partition.

In paticular, if the partition containing the kernel and such gets a
different partition number while otherwise remaining unchanged,
will if still find what it needs?
