I have my production and development sites. They have had different history of installing/uninstalling extensions therefore under core_config_data the config_id does not match unfortunately.

I am wanting to copy over a bunch of settings from the dev site to production however it seems like I'll be skipping a 50 or so ID numbers when I export and import. Does this matter? I am thinking it should be fine as long as there are no overlaps.

It should be fine. Config values are always triggered by path.

If I'm not mistaken config_id is only there for a primary key.

The config_id is not important unless you have some custom code that uses it. (I hope you don't).

The important columns in the core_config_data table are path (most important), scope, scope_id.
