I can't find any wear information so hopefully the carbon sleeve won't fail prematurely or catastrophically.

How would you expect to find any information on "wear" on a part that has been out for about 2 weeks?
This sleeve doesn't touch anything, so "wear" is not the general term that will be used. Fatigue would be the issue here. Thankfully, composites tend to be very good in fatigue.

And if it does, Tesla better not come out saying it is normal wear and tear.
If the sleeve fails at 20,000 RPM, you're going to be very lucky to be around to have a discussion with Tesla about your warranty status ;)

I wasn't referring to the production vehicle but rather tests Tesla or others have performed. I don't know all the technical terms but since the process seems so scientifically advanced, I wanted to find information on potential life cycle and whether heat or other stresses would affect the motor.
