It'll certainly work faster with diamond, but diamond is so rough on any blade that you'll still have to deburr and hone the blade for a razor sharp finish.

Does ceramic form a burr? I always thought burrs were a result of metal blades being malleable at the very edge causing the metal to flow into forming a burr. I’m not sure if ceramics have that malleability?

A burr forms when sharpening really anything. Doesn't have much to do with malleability, it just takes longer with ceramic because its harder. Sharpening any point for knives will result in the same thing, raising a burr, the material will result in ease and time consumption. Like titanium is very very very hard to sharpen. Harder than ceramic, despite not being as hard a material. It's just so incredibly abrasive resistant. Even some tool steels like O1 tool steel is hard to sharpen because it's rockwell rating is over 60 usually. the plus side is these materials hold an edge for a long time.
