The hot shoe is not protected against high voltage, so I doubt they would protect the PC connector. Safer to err on the side of caution ...

As far as I am aware, all Nikons have a trigger voltage of up to 250v -- even my D40 Manual (P100) says:

Use only Nikon Speedlights. Negative voltages or voltages over 250V applied to the accessory shoe could not only prevent normal operation, but damage the sync circuitry of the camera or flash. Before using a Nikon Speedlight not listed in this section, contact a Nikon-authorized service representative for more information.
