"...wondering, how uneven torque around the lugs would yield rotor warpage...."

Even if minutely, the metal of the rotor deforms under pressure, causing distorting of the shape over time. This is compounded by uneven heat distribution due to uneven pad contact and uneven heat conductivity through the studs.

This effect should be slight if an effort is made to torque the bolts evenly by hand, and is much more pronounced if the bolts are torqued fairly evenly, but much too tightly.
