Asbestos hasn't been used in brake linings for decades. Can't speak to the powder, but really?
That's only true in brake pads manufactured in the US. Those made in China often still contain it.

From here:

Most auto manufacturers haven’t installed asbestos-containing brake components since the 1990s due to health concerns for those that perform brake-related automotive repair or maintenance.

And yet, asbestos-containing products continue to present a health risk in the automotive aftermarket industry in North America, primarily due to high sales of low-cost, asbestos-containing brake parts from countries such as China and India. In fact, between 1996 and 2006 the number of asbestos-containing imported brakes had increased 83% and the low-cost advantages of such imports has continued to promote their sales through the current day, putting automotive mechanics at an increased risk of asbestos-related disease.
