oat nutrition: steel-cut, rolled or doesn't matter?

A friend of mine believes she read that the human body gets more nutrition from oatmeal made from steel-cut oats than from oatmeal made from rolled oats or, for that matter, rolled oats eaten in other ways. She was specifically referring to the cholesterol benefits. All the information I have been able to find suggests that nutritional differences are negligible. But that information doesn't seem to address any studies that may have been done about how the human body absorbs or uses those nutrients and any specific effects on cholesterol. I know there are a few nutrition hounds on SE. Anyone have information?
