'Environment' Matter If Move Site To Host?

When setting up a site, you get a choice of the ‘preferred’ environment (currently nginx, php 7, mysql 5, wp 5), or ‘custom’ environment (currently apache, php 7, mysql 5, wp 5). If I later plan to use something like Duplicator to upload my WP site to a host, does it make any difference which local environment I use while building it?
(BTW, in LBF cloning my site did not work until, per advice on the page below, I changed the environment from Custom to Preferred.)
