Drive shaft flex disc nuts driving me nuts

Hi,
I have removed the flex disc nuts in the process of removing the engine and tranny
Marked the nuts properly and since these are nyloc nuts I want to replace them with the same
So I ordered a set from Mercedes Classic but they had to be ordered from Germany
When I got them I was surprised to find these are not nyloc, they don't have that nylon coat inside

My question is should I be worried that they are not nyloc?
Were the original bolts not nyloc?

My hardware store carries these nyloc nuts but I don't know the quality

Those nuts from MB Classic are one time use locking nuts. Even then I always use some blue Loctite for applications like this.

Thank you.
Does anyone know what are the torque specs for the flex disc bolts?
