I don't see why brakelines would freeze up, not like its different than automotive brake systems.

i leave

ive left my bikes out in the shed since forver in the winter .. here it can be -40 *C and i havne't frozen or broken any break lines ... the bike feels slugish at first but one you ride her easy for about 10 minutes shes all warmed up n well lubed again . then you can just ride like you normaly do.

I've herd carbon fibre should not be exposed to freezing temperature.
Not sure what can happen, maybe become brittle & fracture.
Well, it's around -40°C sometimes at the altitude some airplanes with carbon fiber composite structures fly.

I'd say your hockey sticks have kevlar in them as well which may prevent brittleness/cracks.
I'm no aircraft designer & don't know what they do. I do know they use tilles on the side of their shuttles for heat insulation. I thought tilles were only good for bathrooms.
I'm also no bike manufacture and may be way off but best to sway on the side of caution when considering your favourite bike.
Mine has its own bedroom so she can be cosy & snug.
