Even if you are concerned about the issue, there are various tricks to minimize it. You can dip rivet heads in various primers, etc., to help isolate them a little from the steel, dab sealant in each hole before riveting, etc.

Realistically, short of driving in salted-road winter conditions (unlikely, or at least unwise, given the limitations of the car's design), the problem will in all likelihood never arise.
