Of course there is no evidence, Nikon techs are not electronic engineers or even technicians, they are camera mechanics meaning their job is not diagnosing root causes, the test instruments and knowledge required to diagnose to a root cause is something way beyond the scope and time allotment for a task or adjusting, cleaning and replacing larger assemblies. A $0.01 bypass cap shorts on a main processor board and the only way to fix it is replace the $400 entire assembly.

If on a rare case, a service shop did say a 3rd party grip caused the problem they would be just guessing but they make more from charging you $500 for a repair that if under warranty only receives $85 from Nikon, there would be an incentive to lie.
