I am confident that silicone is not the most valuable part of a dead solar panel, it is also a very small part of it! even in a new panel the aluminium frame is a costly part and the glass that protects it is as well, the aluminium has the highest scrap value of any part.
But in 50+ years when this becomes an issue maybe we'll find out.
