How does starting a car engine cause wear?

If one car engine makes 3 revolutions on the starter engine before it runs, and (the same spec) other car engine takes 10, does the starting time cause one engine to sustain more wear than the other?

Please ignore any issues that might cause the engine to be slow to start (ie bad tuning etc). This question is only regarding the starter turning the engine.
