No, fingerpicking sounds more controlled, but the sound of a strumming string will not necessarily have more sustain.

What is an aftermarket pickup?
All guitar manufacturers have aftermarket pickups that are designed to replace the stock pickups. It is often difficult to know what the aftermarket is made of since there are so many variations. Most standard pickups have a small amount of steel around the output coil and usually a black plastic cover. The aftermarket pickup is usually made up of a layer of aluminum that is bent into shape with a small amount of glue. In many cases, the coating is coated with a layer of nickel-plated aluminum. The finish often has some small amount of finish corrosion to prevent rust and corrosion of the output coil. Also, some aftermarket pickups have additional holes or other details that indicate the original model and are made to plug in into the factory jacks.

All aftermarket guitar pickup replacement parts are made to fit the standard pickups (in fact, they might have been designed to fit aftermarket pickups).
