Of course, using subdomains might contribute to the brand 'stackexchange'.
While creating a Stack Exchange site at its own domain could help build a stronger brand for that niche, if the domain name is a good strong name. I don't know if recent use of subdomains is simply because it can be difficult to get good domains, or if it is a preference.
