If water gets in there, I'm sure it does, then it will forum a rust soup.
That might eat at the finish of the wheel.
The wheel and cap I don't think will have "Iron" rust.
Any place water can collect, needs a drain to get rid of it quick and allow it to dry.
I wonder if putting a fine notches in the cap might be worth it.
I was thinking that too. See this thread by JeepJunkie Should this look so corroded?
. Whenever I rotate tyres, I give the hubs, stub axle and nut, just a touch of WD40 being very careful not to get any on the discs. It penetrates well and leaves a fine protective oil film. I'm not in favour of covering it with rust preventative gunk. I could interfere with the hub to wheel friction.
