Most mesh has big enough threads that with ball point or sharp you're going to cut threads if you hit them. Ball points work on knits because the threads are small and loosely knit and can move, mesh - not so much.
All in all - no, it doesn't matter, but doesn't hurt if you want to switch out your needles I guess.
