Only in the case that all accelerating force through the gearbox is 100% matched by deceleration force (like an e-pedal with 'full' Regen) could one get close to equal gear face wear.
Leaf does just that, matching accel and decel using the motor. .... Deceleration from the motor acting as a generator is about equal to the forward-thrust accel mode.
Remember the brake pedal you operate is actually blending in motor decel (regen) with physical brake pads.
We can accelerate at about up to 1/3 G's, and decel up to 1/3 G's is handled by the motor regen. Any braking above 1/3 G's must be done with brake pads phasing in.
One-pedal driving merely shifts (re-maps) the decel regen off the first few centimeters of travel on the brake
pedal on to the accelerator
pedal retreat (accel pedal lift). One-pedal driving is like a speed command with your right foot, with heavy braking of course shifted back to the usual normal brake pedal when the driver needs it.
