None of the above. Receptors are constructed from protein molecules. They have no intrinsic capability to heal or regenerate themselves. Rather than being repaired, they are generally replaced. Receptor (biochemistry) numbers are under feedback control and are adjusted as needed. They are shuttled between the cell surface and intracellular depots. The same could be said for swaths of cell membrane. Cells are very dynamic.
