I would be very surprised if a CF frame was damaged by a stick in the wheels. It's a pretty hardy material.
Didn't someone post about a year or so ago about a rear chain stay breaking when a stick got caught in the wheel or derailleur and then either hit the chain stay or caused the chain to hit it? If I remember it was a carbon frame and the manufacturer called it damage due to misuse. So, there was no coverage.
