D-Pad or Joystick setting on fight stick?

On the TE “S” fight stick there is a setting where you can make the stick as a D-Pad, left stick, or right stick.

Does it make a difference if it is on D-Pad or left stick? I was told one or the other could create some lag input.

Supposed to play on DP.

LS is Analog.
RS is Analog.

LS tends to create lag on input, put it on DP.

Felt some differences on MvC2 and SSF4 when set to LS, couldn’t pull off an AHVB. DP for sure.
