If that were the case you would find bent bolts, mounting ears and possibly frames.

When a shock is bottomed hard, with enough force, something will bend/break. That's the case on any motorcycle. The question is how much force does it take to bend/break things, and what things bend/break.

Nothing is indestructible.
