There may not be any wood, soffit is typically 16mm thick and solid so doesn't crush and will hold screws well.then I wouldn't rely on the plastic, drill through it into the wood. If the plastic is, say, 20mm thick, you screw needs to be around 50mm. I'd put a d-form stainless washer under the screw head to prevent it crushing the plastic, but your fitting bracket may spread the load enough. You want round-head or pan-head screws, not countersunk.
If you want to retain cable along the soffit, clip pins may fall out, but a garden vine-eye or hook, into the timber, won't. It's like a cup-hook but with a much longer shank.
