Except for the "industrial hygiene" issue, i.e. in general extension cords are frowned upon in industry because they can trip people or breakers for that matter if wrongly applied, there isn't a problem using them for non-fixed applications.
Certainly there aren't any functional issues using ANY extension cord for a 40W soldering iron.
I spent my whole career in Electronic manufacturing companies and would qualify as a "professional end user" and an "electronics assembly adviser" and my advice is to not sweat it!
It's one thing to apply mysticism to audio cables but extending it to soldering irons is beyond the pale in my book.
