Rocker covers are aluminium. Aluminium oxidises almost instantly, and so doesnt rust like steel.

Things like fuel rails, thermostat housings, throttle bodies, manifold (intake only), fuel pressure regulators, and a few other small things will be fine to polish, but lose their polished look fairly quickly!
