issues with metal stem camaro TPMS

i was wondering if anybody has any issues with the metal stem TPMS sensors because they are made of aluminum(or some other metal alloy) and the Schrader values are made out of brass(or some other metal alloy) and also can damage the electronics, the main enemy is corrosion and can cause long term effects and air leakage from the valve stem bunghole, this issue is not just for Camaro but for other vehicles on the road today that has something similarly equipped out there

No galvanic or corrosion issues noted on the 5th gen or the new car. I did have one gasket leak on a track wheel.
