Lightbulb LED glowing- another question

Installed new LED fixture and glows after being shut off. Older home, Aluminum ground in old fixture box. I've read about and comfortably understand leaking voltage and capacitance. The glow does not bother us. My question is, Will there be any chance of hazard under these conditions? The wiring above appears to be a link in the box with two hot, two neutral, two grounds and pigtails on each. Aluminum ground is present but not directly connected to the lamps copper ground. Lamp copper is grounded to box separately from the aluminum. I suspect there is enough wire in the box to create voltage leakage in sufficient to ever so slightly turn on the LED. Does not flash or flicker, stays on very very dimly 24/7. Thanks so much for any responses.
