how fan braces are shaped, including scalloped ends or not, definitely makes a difference. Can't say categorically how much or what difference since it depends on several other intersecting factors as well. Scalloped fan tips can certainly affect resonances, weather it would have enough impact to do what you have in mind is another question.

Hard spots at the end of braces can lead to peeling the brace away from the top in some circumstances, where the top might flex under pressure and a stiff brace end would flex.
