I don't think you will have to run preparelegacyechangepermission but I also believe it wouldn't hurt even you run it.

if you skip it, it will be part of other steps, such as prpareAD, anyways.

Afer all, for a brandnew installation, I would just follow the setup GUI, make sure readiness check passes all tests, the program will decided for you.
