>I really don't know what the degradation mechanisms are, sometimes slings are obviously abraded or faded. There could be time dependent changes in the structure of the nylon with time even without use or UV, I'd expect strength reduction to be slower with this than with heavy use.
Chemical degradation is also possible without light (and without bathing in battery acid...).
Studies on parachute nylons suggest humidity is more important than oxidation but there is a synergistic effect of oxygen and humidity on degradation.
Be careful rapping of those old slings in canyons?!
