Mesh density for color maps

I need to get a little clarification on rendering techniques related to mesh density. I know that displacement maps are directly related to a models mesh density, but does this also apply to color maps?

No. Displacement depends on mesh density because it needs to alter the geometry, whereas a colour map does not.
