I would also think the finish could still possibly fail under water exposure. Depending on the type of finish, It could also make it toxic, making it harder and more expensive to get rid of the cut-offs. The exterior finish is what needs to keep moisture away from the wood.
I have seen plenty of water rotted wood, including pressure treated wood. Eventually, even treated wood will break down under extreme circumstances.
