Really cant make out what you are experiencing, is the white stuff hard or soft, is it peeling from edges of the silicon..?
an image would help to get the idea..
One thing is the silicon becomes white once the tank is filled with water, especially the part which is exposed to the water. and excessive silicon will start to peel off as the time goes by..

That has nothing to do with the silicone, something is off in your water parameters that is promoting growth of bacteria or fungus colonies. The Silicone provides a perfect place for them to attach and grow. It looks messy, but otherwise harm less. It will go away after a few large water changes
