My car has 2700 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Traction control works by controlling throttle input and braking. If the road conditions are slippery and the system senses wheel spin, the electronics will either reduce the throttle input, apply brakes to individual or numerous wheels, or both. Traction control systems will have very little effect on the transmission function or life. In some instances like deep snow, it can be more beneficial to turn the system off and allow some wheel spin to get moving. However in normal driving, the system will have very little input or effect on your driving.
