If yes, it only makes sense that 44.1 kHz file will sound better eventually.

I also assume that the audio is being converted by YouTube to a compressed AAC or mp3..?
In this case, I wonder what's better-
A. To upload the best sounding WAV file and let YouTube compress it, or
B. To try and find out what are the exact specification of the compression YouTube uses, do it myself, and hopefully the audio will be left untouched by YouTube.
