For DCC buss wire use, does it matter if I use SOLID or STRANDED wire ?

Not really. Use either type as you desire.
Stranded is more flexible but may require crimped spade/ring lug connections to screw terminal strips if you use them.
Solid wire can be used with screw terminals without any crimped on lugs. May hold twists better than stranded.
