difference between wax and sealants and are silicone polymers bad?

I have a sealant with silicone polymers in it. I have heard that silicone is bad and if the car ever needs to be touched up or painted, it will cause a problem. Wouldn't the painter just be able to clean off the silicone sealant?

Silicone is difficult to clean off from what I've heard. It's a cheap and easy way to make it shine though. Some car washes use it for that reason.

paint has pours, and absorbs materials applied to it. therefore it is often harder, sometimes impossible to get all of the contamination out of the pours. that is what causes painters problems= fish eyes.
painters hate silicone, armor all, and wd-40!!!
