Yes, say: some of them.

You're right. I am able to change obj_tab_size or
extra_mem_bot.pdflatex, e.g., to some other values, and those values
are used as my log-file reports it. So firstly, the texmf.cnf-file
in which the changes are done is used. So the question remains:
What is the name of the environment variable that has an effect on
pdf_mem_size? Obviously, the name is not "pdf_mem_size". Or is that
value hard-wired into pdf(e)latex?

Yes, refer to my first posting here: the problem arose while I was
trying to achieve font expansion to some other fonts, namely the

That's the point: HOW?
