Just changed a tube on friend's Stella 2T. A new experience for me.

Lots of RUST! Crying or Very sad

It seems that water gets into the tire cavity between the split rim discs.

Would it be useful to run a thin bead of RTV around the inside of the rims before bolting together?

You could try it and let us know.

I’d clean off the rust and then apply a thin coat of grease between the rims.

I think rust builds up from non-use of the scooter. If you ride a lot you’ll need to change the tires/inner tubes couple of years and the rust will not get so bad.
