Oxygen absorber packets generate some heat. Could that be counterproductive for preservation?

There are various highly antioxidative powders and such I have around, and I've been considering adding oxygen absorber packets to some of them. But I know that as part of the mechanism, heat is generated. For substances also liable to break down upon heat exposure, should one avoid using these? Particularly in a smaller container? -- let's say 4oz containers and smaller packed with powder or tablets are my concern, since I doubt it's an issue in a big bag or something. This is not something I know much about so an education would be much appreciated.

The oxygen absorbers are generally just finely powered iron and absorb O2 by turning to rust.  They do so very slowly, so I think the temperature rise you're going to get in your container will be minimal.
