It is my understanding that even non-conductive grease is
not a problem on electrical connections. In fact some
switch contacts are greased to prevent contact oxidation
and provide mechanical lubrication.
I think the danger of over torquing things with greased
tapered threads still exists when one uses a torque
wrench. I got my first lesson on this when using Teflon
tape on plumbing fittings.
