(IMHO) There are more repeated threads on this site regarding disimilar metal seatpost that have cold-welded to the frame.
This is also good advice for ALL pedal systems...

Just remember to do it every year. No grease (or anti sieze) will last forever.

Still recommend anti-sieze for Aluminum and Carbon - they have sufficient potential difference in materials to cause galvanic corrosion - original carbon frames used to come unglued due to this problem - years ago worked with atrifical limbs in same materials - should have seen the mess when people pissed down their legs!! (recommend you don't piss on your seatpost / frame either)
