When I'm in a multiplayer mission and then quit, I forfeit any XP and cash that I might have earned.

Tonight, I played a MP mission and used a rocket launcher to kill a Banshee and a Brute at the same time (I was very proud of myself), but then I got an important phone call and had to quit the mission. I was a little sad about the XP loss, but I was quite sad about my missile. But then I thought, "Maybe my missile didn't get recorded as used if I didn't finish the mission?"

When are consumable items such as medi-gel and rockets marked as expended during a multiplayer mission, at the moment of use or after the mission is over?

Once you use it, you've used it. However if you rejoin the mission before it ends, you'll still contribute for the other players and get credit! I'd suggest in a currently going mission rather than quitting, run to the extraction point and let yourself die there. That way the group can theoretically still get a full extraction.
