Having the partition aligned to the erasure blocks probably gives the most
It's unlikely to matter. Any erase block that gets sufficiently stale
because there's a partition boundary right through it will eventually
just be migrated to a new block elsewhere, for wear leveling purposes.
If you really want to you can partition everything in advance (fdisk,
gdisk, gparted, blivet-gui) and then tell the installer which
partitions to re-use by reformatting them, which does retain the
partitions as you've created them.
Almost always, mkfs defaults should work best. If they don't, then
that needs to be looked at.
