In 100% it does matter. Any other category it does not matter.

In every Finale 1 (and Chapter 8's Finale 2), you still have to find and collect 3 gems before the exit opens. The Finale 2's for Chapters 1 through 7 have keys at the end that can be interacted with without needing to unlock them with gems first.
