No way to adequately inspect chainplates without remocing them. In fact, crevice corrosion can start on the inside and work outward. FWIW, i pulled mine in the spring because I was concerned. Visually, they looked perfect from the outside. Reinstalled with new standing rigging. No issues after several thousand miles of sailing this year, mostly in moderate to strong wind.

I doubt deflection to the forestay would cause damage to chainplates. Shock loads would cause shroud damage well before chainplate damage and the mast would absorb a lot of shock loads.
