Not much of a toe change, but it would change.
Take it to the extreme and rotate the axle 180, the leading edge would then be toed out.

I set my drag link position just by eyeballing the wheel position. I would say most can align toe by tape measure. My Dads tech school has a alignment rack so I checked my toe and I was only off by about a 1/16 of an inch by setting it with a tape.

I too see your point and also, isn't there something funky about shimming to keep pinion angle correct that messes with the castor also?
Like you said though, add lift shackles and you do change the geometry, but if would have to be a very tall lift shackle to affect toe to any noticable amount.
