Fee rate of swap partners

Posted 11 days ago by Bitnoob

Is it useful to know the fee rate of participating nodes in a swap before joining? 
I notice that some of my partner nodes in the swaps I joined have very high fee rates of 2000 - 4000 sats. I thought that funds will not be transmitted via these partner nodes as often. However, I do find that these channels still transmit lightning payments in significant numbers.
I wonder if the lightning network prioritizes liquidity and connectivity of nodes rather than fee rates of individual nodes when transmitting lightning payments.
