I've had mine on my 9 since 2009, and I haven't had any sort of issue like that. I could see that happening if someone was dragging the kickstand along the ground for an extended period of time while moving the bike. However, I can't imagine that happening from using the kickstand and positioning it properly.
Lol. Don't have the kickstand but definitely sums it up for the pegs.
I am looking at the short kickstands now and have already accepted that the cleanest and best any chrome will look is right after you install it, after that screw it. Not worth changing my riding style or worry about the little things.
