Mirrorless sensors deteriorate faster than DSLR?
1

I've read a few discussions and articles about camera sensors deteriorating over time, or more specifically the CFA component gradually fades. There is a general consensus that yes, this does occur, but is dependant on a few factors; original durability and materials used, age, and possibly most importantly the collective amount of exposure. Like window tints on a car that slowly fade and you don't notice until you roll down the window and see that little strip at the top that's normally covered by the window seal and hasn't faded like the rest of the window. The big takeaway was that is happens so slowly, that the average life of a camera would likely not net any significant fading, which could meant 20 years before anything noticeable...

But, all of these discussions and articles are older and based on DSLR usage. A DSLR sensor would see the tiniest fraction of a sliver of exposure during general usage compared to a mirrorless. If exposure of the sensor is the main driver of CFA fading, then would that not dramatically expedite the aging of a sensor in a mirrorless vs a DSLR?

There doesn't seem to be much out there specifically updated to consider mirrorless, but I'm wondering if anyone here has any insight?
