Elementary Watson.

Salt and sugar are not preservatives AT ALL, but only in certain concentrations. For salt, this is usually a few percent (although there are exceptions - for corned beef or cold-salted mushrooms - there are already more than 10%). For sugar, this is tens of percent.

In the body, neither sodium chloride nor sucrose can reach such a concentration. If they could, they would have conserved not only microbes and fungi, but also the human body itself.

And the corpse doesn't care whether microbes and fungi eat it or not))
