I see this option reasonable. That's true for some bullet characters there are
two sizes (small and large), but I guess it's not true for all symbols. If you
select a custom symbol (for example an arrow), it is useful that you can
specify its size.

This Impress-only setting might come from the different usage of text. I mean
in Impress there isn't a general text flow, but text is always inside some text
box. In text boxes it might be useful to use relative sizes, since in this way
if you change the font (for example to fit in the current text box) of the text
the bullet size will follow it. This difference is there in MS Office too.
