Do you mean "can they be exploited to make the exile permanent?" Then yes.
End the turn after the stag's delayed trigger is put on the stack and it will never trigger again.

Very good! Oh wait, you wanted more?

If you use Sundial in response to the delayed triggered ability that returns the exiled object, it will never be returned and you exile something permanently. Is that what you are looking for?

how do Glimmerpoint stag and sundial of the infinite work in relation to each other

how?
well it depends on how one uses them.

Is there a sneaky trick hidden in their usage? indeed there is

Is there anything special I need to do to use it? yes there is

Glimmerpost Stag's trigger sets up a delayed trigger that fires at the beginning of the next end step whenever that is (normally it'll happen the same turn Stag enters the field)

if you end your turn prematurely (meaning before your end step shows up), Glimmerpost Stag will trigger on the next player's end step because that is the next end step, however, if you wait for it to trigger during your end step and then activate Sundial in response to it, the turn will skip to the cleanup step and the Stag trigger will be exiled and never resolve - leaving the object exiled indefinitely.

Does that mean you could respond to anything that has an "until end of turn" with Sundial's ability and it will never trigger? Say I used Alabaster Mage's ability on Serra Angel to give it lifelink, and when the end of turn step starts, use Sundial of the Infinite and Serra Angel would permanently have lifelink?

no, you are confusint "until end of turn" and "at the beginning of the end step"

Sundial of the Infinite ends "until end of turn" effects (it even says so in the reminder text), but since there was no "end step" it will not affect things that care about that.
