I wouldn't sweat it too much, honestly.

In the US, (thanks to the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act) to deny a warranty claim due to aftermarket parts, they would first have to prove that a specific aftermarket component caused the failure in the first place.

If anything, a stiffer rear mount should prolong the life of the other two motor mounts. I'm not sure if there's an equivalent of the MM act up there, but I'd look into it if you're really that worried.
