Would a commander get far less experience for not making his own kills? Or how does this work?

I've been playing on Beginner using the "Super Warrior" strategy, so except in the very beginning experience distribution is not a factor, but on higher difficulties it would definitely be an issue, so trying to figure out how it works.
