Do magic items resize?

Forgive me for this is probably a question I could find answers for in the DMG, but I keep looking through it and the PHB and I'm just not locating it.

Do armor and weapons resize when picked up for the new wearer/wielder?

The DMG says that size shouldn't be an issue, but then it says, "armor and weapons that are found at random have a 30% chance of being small (01-30), a 60% chance of being medium (61-90) and a 10% chance of being any size of the DM's choice (91-100)." I never use random magic items, so this has never been an issue posed before--when my group finds magic items, they've just fit to whatever opponent they took it off of (I have a lot of humanoid encounters). Now, though, I have them going up against fire giants, and I just want to know if the dwarf can wield the fire giant's warhammer. :-p

I know there's rules for wielding a weapon that is not attuned to your size category, but then, since this warhammer is a flaming burst weapon, will it resize itself to fit the dwarf?

I can just smell this being an issue that comes up at my game today. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks ahead of time!
