I've seen it used on door and sunroof seals and to quieten door panels that squeak.  A little will go a long way.

Comes up as some sort of anti-seize compound.

I think the new version is this:

(you can buy for less from MB)

Used to eliminate interior panel squeaking according the Chemical Products Catalog.    MB thought of everything!  I could probably use it on my W126 the interior makes all kinds of sounds.
