Accidently put white lithium grease on my sunroof weather stripping – did I break my car?

Hi all.

Pretty new to car detailing. Car was having squeaks so I put some white lithium grease on the tracks because I read online it was a good product to use for the sunroof tracks.

However, the problem is I also applied some of it on the weatherstripping where the sunroof closes and makes the seal. I just realized today (almost 1.5 months later) that white lithium grease has petroleum and shouldn't be used on any kind of rubber, so I rushed out and tried to wipe any excess away and instead applied a silicon lubricant.

My question is, did I do irreparable damage to the weather stripping? It still looks okay, no cracks or rotting or anything from what I can tell. Will it now all of the sudden fail like 5 years early because it was introduced to petroleum product?

Any thoughts?

Thanks.
