Don't know, but I doubt it. I'd think the differences, if really
reliable, would be due to intrauterine influences, such as, say the kid's
testosterone. I also think Y is too small to have much on it. Not that
that means a lot.
That said, about 1:20,000 males are XX with the TDF gene havinf hopped to
an homologous spot on the X chromosome. They are sterile, as some sperm
stuff is on the Y and only on the Y, but nonetheless that population is
there. I don't know if anyone has looked at the callosum. They are,
though, really male, since all the tissues responded to the testicles that
the TDF started.
