Or is the impact of software like multieq minimal compared with the difference effective placement location makes?
Effective placement will make all the difference. Even the best room correction software would have difficulty compensating for poor placement If you have 2 equally good spots for the sub that's not a bad thing because you now have potential for a 2nd sub.
Muli-Q will set delays and level match your speakers and sub. There likely more to it than that, but I'm no audyssey expert. There's absolutely nothing wrong with setting it up in location A and running audyssey. Listen for a few days, then try location B and re-run audyssey. You may find no difference or you may prefer one over the other.
