Unless your freezer has a window or runs the light 24/7 even when it's closed, regular vacuum bags should be sufficient.

The foil doesn't just block the light, it provides an impervious oxygen barrier.  If I had foil bags for my vacuum sealer, I'd use them for long-term storage.

i've always vacuum sealed, but recently i've been exploring the mason jar attachment for my sealer.

if the vacuum is held tight, then i don't believe any oxygen is getting in.

If you have a leak in the seal, then sure.
