if the truss is subjected only to concentrated joint loads, and there are no eccentricities of neutral axis joining the node, there will not be significants moments at nodes so both assumptions (pinned/fixed ends) will conduct to similar results. However, if the structure has loads along the members, flexure must be considered.
Joints shall be design accordingly. I mean, for angles subjected only to axial forces (pinned) you would need differents lengths of weld.
Hope this help.
