Why not run ALL of it in PVC?

Better yet, use EMC

What are you protecting it from?

Masonry doesn't harm the sheath/insulation.

perhaps your idiotic to think that it really takes that much longer to stick a pipe through a wall
You also have to drill a much larger hole to accept the PVC. A little 3/8" hole is all you need for the romex.

UF resists insulation degradation from the ultraviolet component of sunlight. . .?
No sunlight, no UF?

This must be your shortest post yet. UF is used for wet and underground locations, unlike NM cable.
