Speaking from experience. It won’t stop. My mom is afraid of my brother, always did what he wanted to no matter how abusive he gets. We’re adults, she still pretty much obeys him because she’s afraid he’ll freak out. (Her words). Like you I’m polite too towards my parents. He’s yell the name of a drink and my mom jumps up to get it. If I ever would ask politely for anything and I get yelled at. They always take it out on someone “beneath them. Aka, someone who does not act that way. There’s no right way to respond to it. The sibling they’re afraid of will be the golden child. You can try to express to your parents how you feel and leave it up to them, since they are the parents it’s their job to fix this. Good luck.
