I'd say the silicone sleeves will crack (due to UV) and let water in (corroding them) if you leave them up all year.

I would say Yes because the silicone sleeve has some UV properties and also from leaving similar silicone sleeved based strip outdoors for 3 years + which has survived, be it a little yellowed. But for permanent outdoor I prefer to use the solid silicone type rather than the sleeve.
