I know that working green wood when it’s frozen is quite hard on blades (mostly this applies to chainsaws). If you have well-seasoned wood I’d expect that it would be slightly harder on blades but not outrageously so since most of the water’s gone.
But maybe others have actual experience with this.

In my experience, yes. Carbide blades perform proportionately better, but even more so in non-frozen wood.
