No damage I know of in any vehicle, except the risk of not subsequently eliminating all contamination. The most deterioration and contamination of the brake fluid will occur at the caliper cylinders, and pushing them in far enough to install new pads can move the grungy stuff all the way to the master cylinder. Since you should be bleeding the brakes anyway, draining the caliper cylinders is a prudent move.
