In the context of a table leaf, what is the correct plural term, "table leafs" or "table leaves"?
Per Merriam-Webster's online dictionary either is a correct plural for the word leaf. There is no differentiation between the usages.
The usage of the word for part of a table is that it is suggestive of a leaf. Hence, it follows the same usage.
Though, I must say that more and more sources I've looked at prefer leaves as the plural of leaf (in any usage). Example
