Most rigid Mtb forks are beefy their whole way down. So are most carbon ones. The difference in damping will pale in comparison to what can be achieved through modifying front tire size and inflation pressure.

Buy carbon for weight reduction.
Ti, if you can justify the expense.
Buy steel if you think you might ever crash, or jump, or come in contact with a rock, or branch, or hardened bit of dirt...
