I have seen them cause the spring cover to pop off but that is it.
I'll admit, I have not seen everything but I have been doing this daily for almost 20 years.
It tends to damage the springs. This might not make the lock not operate with the key, but it will make other means of entry difficult such as picking or impressioning. An incorrect stack height or one that is borderline will compound this.
Surprised you haven't come across this problem in 20 years.
