Nowadays camera batteries are (almost) invariably LiIon (Lithium Ion). There may be a very few specialised exceptions. LiIon capacity falls as you approach 0 C - it's not that they discharge quickly as such, but that the capacity falls. LiIon is unlikely to suffer permanent damage under charge or discharge down to 5 degrees C. Discharge is safe down to ...

As for your question, while keeping the battery on low temperatures can decrease capacity for some times. I don't think that it'll permanently damage your pack.
