Be careful with silicone based sealants as they contaminate oil, only use a little bit as you don't want it weeping over the edges inside your engine as its can cause the oil pump to block up

Yeah but if there's any residue on the inside of the seal that can come in contact with the oil it can cause bits to break off which will get into the oil pump,

It's perfectly fine to use just be careful with it
