If you haven't found anything better, here's a not very elegant solution:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\newcommand\alignboxed[2]{\rlap{\boxed{#1#2}}\hphantom{#1\mkern6mu}}
\begin{document}
\begin{align}
f_1(x) &= a+bx, \\
f_2(x) &= a+bx+cx², \\
\alignboxed{f_3(x)}{= a+bx+cx²+dx³.}
\end{align}
\end{document}
This works similarly:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\def\alignboxed#1\endalignboxed{\rlap{\boxed{#1#2}}\hphantom{#1\mkern6mu}
}
\begin{document}
\begin{align}
f_1(x) &= a+bx, \\
f_2(x) &= a+bx+cx², \\
\alignboxed
f_3(x) &= a+bx+cx²+dx³.
\endalignboxed
\end{align}
\end{document}
Cheers, Phil
