When I worked at a company that made solenoid valves, failed coils due to moisture wicking thru wire leads was often a problem in field failures.
Even epoxy potting/sealing could be subjected to wicking depending on conditions. A hot engine compartment contributed at times.
So did corrosive liquids like pesticides, and I would put salt water in that group.
