As above, if no leaks it cured and sealed. 😊

if the silicone hasn't been touched or damaged and there is no leak you should be ok

You should be fine, silicon would have formed a skin by then. The silicon around the plug would be a very thin bead anyway and is there purely as a backup. ‘If it doesn’t leak don’t fix it’.
