Is the wiring exposed to sunlight?

I wouldn't think so, it is going directly to the light fixture mounted on outside wall of garage. That is why I am asking....

I guess I don't understand the question.

The wiring is IN the inside walls of the garage, just like typical in a house?
I assume the fixture is flush with the exterior of the garage wall?

Then NO, you do not need sunlight resistant wire since none of the wire will ever see sunlight.
