Overclocking can potentially result to various issues. The possible consequences, in any case, do not define if a component is bad or not. If it was safe it wouldn't void the component's warranty in the first place.

This kind of issue does not necessarily mean that the socket will die in the long-run under normal usage either.
No matter how well-made the hardware is, it will die if you make it do stuff above its limit. In that particular case it just looks like extreme overclocking is above the limit of Foxconn sockets. It's not their fault if some people cross the red line.
