Does specific camera plate make a difference?

Since the camera plate (Arca-Swiss compatible) comes in various flavours, but is essentially a non-mechanical part, does the plate actually make any difference to a tripod setup at all?

For what they are they seem to be incredibly expensive? RRS charges around 85.00 incl PP and sales tax whereas you y can buy them for around 12.00 as well ...

Any thoughts on this?

Cheers
