Use a boolean value to indicate when mouse is on & check in render. Or add the render listener when pointerover happens & remove it with pointerout. Or if you dont prefer events you can do a hittest and see if current pointer position overlaps with your object.

For example

let isOn = false;
sprite.addEventListener("pointerover", ()=>isOn=true);
sprite.addEventListener("pointerout", ()=>isOn=false);

const onRender = ()=>{
    // do something.
