Best way to semi-permanent fill braze on threads?

So I've got canti posts on a bike that I'm not using. What's the best filler to keep the water/dirt/oil out of the threads so that if I ever want to use them again, they won't be rusted junk?

Special made, or just like the silicone caulk I used to seal the kitchen sink (clear)?

Grease up some brake bolts and screw them in.

A little grease followed by heat-shrink tubing in your choice of color.
