I haven't heard of it as an insult, but I have heard that sometimes therapists label their clients as BPD if they aren't able to help them.
I think that you are correct that it is usually diagnosed in adolescents or adults rather than in children, but it seems reasonable to me that these people must have had at least some characteristics of BPD even in childhood.

Plus, being autistic doesn't discount having also had a crappy or abusive childhood, which might give right to interpersonal trust issues and bring out some BPD traits.
