"Blackened" or "Burned" purely cosmetic?

Does "blackend" or "burned" because of exposure to fire or acid have any stat-based effects on equipment, or is it purely cosmetic?

I imagine a player could look over a clothing item, piece of armor, or weapon and see if it was now more fragile, less protective, or dulled because of being blackened or burned...

It can have an effect on things.

But, to clarify, there is a difference between 'blackened' and 'burned'.  Something that is burned is, well, burned.  But something that has been 'blackened' may have been through a tempering process to make it harder.
