The very first fairing panels were used on four generic technical sets.
There was an update to the design of these pieces that first made an appearance in the Williams F1 Team Racer.
In 2009, the pieces underwent a major design overhaul and are the same principle design seen today. Rectangular versions first appeared in Bionicle sets the year before.
The 2009 technic sets made use of angular versions of these parts.
Perhaps this isn’t a complete list, but I don’t see any branded models.
The most recent of this style of panel was designed, and appeared, in 2013.
By comparison, the first branded car I can find that uses the latest style of panel pieces was produced the Porsche 911 produced in 2016.
I think your perception that LEGO designs parts to fit new branded models is generally wrong. LEGO design parts for lots of different reasons, it seems rare for new Technic pieces to make their first appearance in a branded set. The Williams F1 car is the only example I can find, though it is hard to pin things down to exact models / years.
