The only reason I know is that it's hard to remove the silicon oils
and you cant solder through it.

The contacts should be cleaned first, a little bit of silicon based grease
or oil is ok to protect the surface but globs of it is not desireable.

If you have solder problems keep the silicon grease away until fixed!
