IMO/IME, it will make little, if any difference there.
I use a hop spider to keep the hop matter from going into my plate chiller. But, everything else that's in the keggle goes through the chiller and then into the fermenter. The yeast I use makes a nice compact cake on the bottom of the fermenter, so racking to serving keg, or aging vessel, is no issue. At least, that's if you know what you're doing.
