I want to ask if the name of a subdomain can affect search engine optimization (SEO)

I am making a tech website like cnet.com and also adding a downloads page like download.cnet.com , which will have multiple softwares to download

Now I can name my website downloads.example.com (with a "s") or download.example.com (without a "s"), will this affect SEO?

Someone is more likely to serach "How to download Chrome" than searching "downloads" or "Browser downloads" while searching

So will having download.example.com (without a "s") have a better SEO?
Does the words a person search connect/relate to the word in the subdomain?
