I had the same problem as you, I checked the documentation (https://helpx.adobe.com/bridge/using/export-panel.html) and here is the solution I came up with.

Right click on your export action, then "Edit". In the "Image size" section, choose "Resize to" instead of "Scale image", and make sure you put your desired "Resolution". Then choose again "Scale Image". You will see that the choosen resolution (greyed out) stays as you put it.  Save the export preset.

If you see that it still export with 300p

HI Grayskyz,

 

The web is resolution independant. When printing resolution is very dependant.

 

If your image is 600 pixels wide and 300 pixels dpi, it will print at 2 inches wide.

 

The exact same image will appear on the screen at 600 pixels wide. 

 

However, this is completely ignoring issues of hirez screens and 100% display issues that also have nothing to do with Resolution. 

 

Try it, you'll like it.

 

Let me know

If you see that it still export with 300ppi, just keep selected "Resize to", use "Fit" "Long edge" and put 20000pixels (it's the maximum size you can export with) for the "Dimension" field and make sure you thick "Don't enlarge". And save the export preset.
