No not really, but they can become damaged and then the damage is spread from tool to tool and lead to lead.
regular checks on both lead and tool end replacing any worn items will prevent the damage spreading

the advantages of the plug it out weigh the disadvantages imo

Why do Festool accessories only have a two month guarantee here in the UK ?

Unless the tool is on a dedicated station, in constant use and never gets unplugged, then it's just another part with the potential to go wrong.
