Personally I think the plastic caps are pre-leaks looking for the time and place to loosen and leak and pull loose.
I can't say that my counter-sunk washers and screws will be any better, but the stainless steel won't break down from the UV.

To protect the caps paint them gloss white before installing them. A previous owner had painted the vent cap white and we have continued this since we purchased it, now painting it twice. It's a brilliant white and I believe it's the original vent cap.

We use rustoleum white in a can for the vent cap because we have it. For the vent caps we use spray rustoleum white, again because we have it.
