Of course not, but I still have not found out how to change the font size of a door tag family (or create a new family with a different size).

The font size of the families I can find are too big.

My question has HOW do I "make it 0.0001 mm"?

I solved it by opening a door tag family file (rfa), change the font size and then use the modified family for the project...

Here is a step by step guide, for Revit 2011:

1. Select a door tag.  The "Modify" tab will highlight green and change to "Modify|Door Tags".

2. Select "Edit Family" under the green tab.  The family file will open.  It is a separate file outside of the project file.

3. Select the label itself, not the borders (which are lines).  The Modify tab now changes to "Modify|Label".

4. Oddly enough, you do not select "Edit Label" under the "Modify|Label" tab.  Rather, select the "Edit Type" button under the properties box.  Pay close attention to what you are choosing, else confusion will ensue.  A dialogue box will open when you select "Edit Type".

5. Now you can change the font size of the tag itself, next to "Text Size".

6. Once you've got it like you want it, hit the "Load into Project" button under the "Modify" tab. 

The main lesson to learn from this exercise is what changes you can make by either clicking "Edit Type" or "Edit Label".  They each allow a different set of changes.
