LEDs don't like such conditions, so I bet that these will fail soon.

Yes. But most maintenance people don't know how to install weatherpacks so they doing the installation such that the fixture isn't vapour tight anymore.

I"m don't speak english well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I hope that LED won't replace all forms of other light

The moisture condensation could be a problem or not.
This module has been used in a bathroom with similar conditions (repeatedly) in an open fixture to ensure air flow for three years and no issues with moisture condensation have appeared yet. But it really depends...

The problem with LEDs on a 100% humidity, is the LEDs themselves and not necessary the drivers. With CFLs, only the ballast is sensitive and it is enclosed in the plastic cover.
This is here in Israel that maintenance persons don't know how to install weaterpacks in the correct way to retain their IP65 rating. At the corridor of storages of Carmel hospital, there were some cases where electronic ballasts in Chinese weatherpacks failed as a result from water ingress in the weatherpacks, caused by water leakage from the A/C water pipes, because the people that installed them, did a lazy work during the install, that allowed water to enter into the weatherpacks (Which are rated IP65), and shorting the ballast.
