Even if what you say is possible, and it is not, it still doesn’t get into the crankcase.
Not true. It plugged completely once and it did indeed run. I'm telling you from experience. I'm not guessing. The engine shut off completely and black smoke belched out of the tailpipe when it happened the first time but then started and ran and yes the cat was completely plugged off.

How does silicone from a lack of filtration get into the crankcase?
