25 miles, so far no outward signs that silicone isn't working. I'll do one more ride and then take it off again and inspect.

Red Devil is very thick, the consistency of a jelly or toothpaste, and I don't see why it would be a good idea. I think it would just jam the bearings. I had another sacrificial bearing that came with a SRAM X9 crank, took it apart, it was packed with something like Red Devil inside. It was barely spinning. Started spinning after generously washed it with WD-40 and got most of the grease out.
