Stucco needs protection, like all cement products. It is quite capable of absorbing some water. In frost zones, it could easily crack. If it has water in the surface and it froze, water getting in the building materials is not a good thing. It needs protection. It needs a sealer. Usually, that's paint. Stucco can come with a color additive in it, which is fine. However, everything wears over time. If you look at a surface wood or stucco, you may think it looks pretty well protected, but if there is any water getting into it, then it definitely needs some touch-ups.
