Don’t let your water-based glue bottles freeze. The glue will be significantly weaker after.

Once the glue has cured it should be okay to freeze, though. I’ve never heard that you should prevent freezing of cured glue. Titebond II and III both indicate that they are “ideal for exterior woodworking projects, including outdoor furniture, birdhouses, mailboxes, planters and picnic tables.” Most of these projects in most of the US will be exposed to freezing temperatures. Might be a good question for Titebond customer service.
