Yes, rDNA does form ribosomal subunits. This occurs inside the nuclear membrane at an area called the nucleolus. Two subunits are formed consisting of a small (40S) and a large (60S) subunit. These subunits are then leave the nucleus and assemble in the cytoplasm or on the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum.
