I guess carbon rims heat up quicker than alloy with any type of brake material, and as cork grips worse it heats up less.

The issue is that the carbon rims do not accept or dissipate the heat from the pads. The pads actually melt and leave deposits on the rim. The cork impregnated pads work better on the carbon rims and have a much better feel than the non-cork pads.
