I can't see how a switch from one socket to another would void the warranty from a 3rd party LED lamp manufacturer. Obviously if you are bending the LED lamps pins in such a way so to fit the wrong socket type then you may have issues, but other than that I don't think you would have a problem.
Im not referencing 3rd party Lamp manufacturers. Let's take for instance Hadco (I know you love them!). Their LED fixtures are not integrated for the most part. It contains a Phillips drop in lamp that comes from the factory and through ewing it carries a lifetime warranty. These lamps are also not considered field replaceable. If the lamp fails, Hadco will not allow you to replace the lamp, you have to replace the fixture under their warranty. Thus, all of their testing has occurred under their own elements (sockets, shrouds, etc) and they will not warranty any modifications.
