Adjuster lubrication?

I've heard replacement brake adjusters are made of monkey metal! So I've spent some time (arguably to much) to unseize  my own original ones. So without wanting to sound sense were the little piston and the adjuster spigot ever lubricated with anything, or left completely dry. If so what?

originally probably white /clear mechanical brake grease  heat proof and lubricant 

copper slip can go hard with heat /age and make things less than lubricated  even  though  its not seized 

various brands are easy available on the market place or factors

I recall using Castrol PH White (Brake) Grease back in the late 70's and 1980s - if I remember correctly it was recommended because it was 'waterproof' (it also had marine applications). It did the job. Not sure why I started using copper later on - probably because I had a tube to hand.
