Maybe Lexan (a brand of polycarbonate) absorbs tiny amounts of water but it's the most durable clear bill material. You can soak it in water for a long time without it affecting it. I've found lures snagged on the bottom for months before their hooks rusted off and floated the lure, and the polycarbonate bills seemed as good as new.

I've had zero issues with any polycarbonate I've used. Right down to 36 degree water,, still with stood the punishment.

I imagine if it was absorbing water it would turn a different colour, which I have never seen.

I recall reading somewhere that even monofilament fishing line absorbs water but only to a microscopic degree.
