That could have its importance, yes. I have heard that e.g. unetbootin
does horrible hacks which could very well have impact over what actually
happens in the installer. Normally all you need to do to write the usb
stick is a mere "dd" command, nothing more.

They should not be needed at all, 's' is enough to stay in text mode.

Note that you can also change that from within the installer: at the
first menu, type character '<' to get back to the main menu, from which
you can choose "Change debconf priority".
