Not a concern with current Nikon 35mm system

Note the "Connectivity chart" on the last page. SWC (38mm) + MF Digital Back = not recommended.

Exit pupil too close to sensor = high ray angles at edges.

Yes, that can be a problem with an MF back, or on 35mm with certain exotic extreme wide angles that Nikon made in the distant past (which shouldn't be used with dSLRs as they require the mirror to be locked up).

However, for any Nikon 35mm-system lens that doesn't protrude into the mirror box, you will not approach the situation that Hasselblad is warning about.
