Just my best guess, but....
I would think.... "boot cycles"?
NO.
The BIOS provides information to the operating system as to what hardware devices are present and available for use when the OS enumerates the system hardware.
IF it is "disabled" the OS will not see it or use it, so.... No I/O demands would be made on it by the Operating System, but....
I don't believe that informing the system firmware that a particular piece of hardware is "disabled" would prevent it from being energized with the rest of the boards hardware components at Power ON.
So I would expect the M.2 to remain idle but warm and any impact to any overall power concerns or long term impact to the device's life cycle to be minimal.

Again just one person's best guess.
