Yes. Lithium grease is thicker and better suited for things like bearings. Corrosion block is a thinner liquid and can penetrate to places a grease can't.
For example, in my boat trailer bearings I use a marine grade heavy axle grease. Every so often I push more grease in, and if the old grease pushed out looks too funky I remove the tire and inspect everything. Then repack.
The engine block and all electrical connections on my waverunner get sprayed with Corrosion Block, or one of the many similar products (BOE Shield, Fluid Film, etc).
Two different applications, two different things.
Likewise, you don't put lithium grease in the oil pan of your car - you use motor oil.
A bicycle is a machine. A fairly simple machine compared to a boat or car, but still a machine. What is good for one part of this machine may or may not be the best option for another part. That is all.
