Threadlocker needed on caliper slide bolts?

Do you need to put thread locker on caliper slide bolt threads, or is simply putting silicone on the slide pin itself and torquing the bolt sufficient?

A couple of drops of low strength (blue) and tightened to the correct torque is always the best option.And a little grease on the sliding part of the pin will ensure a smooth operation of the calliper.
