No magic here. The copper only adds in a third metal, which really doesn't 
help. If anything, the oil base just insulates and keeps the metals from 
interacting. Any grease would do the same.

If it contained zinc, the zinc is more electronegative and would be 
sacrificial, but there really isn't enough metal in here to make a significant 
difference.
