Yeah, those are safe like they said. I may get some too then, thanks!

I live in a quite dusty country, so much so that I can literally see some dust buildup on my desk mat after just cleaned it the day before.
That much even after covering nearly every gaps around windows and doors.
So I wonder if this thing is safe to use and all.
Seem it's made from rubber.

If it is safe to use, robably going to search for PCIe X1 version too.

If it's a slot covering, I am sure it's safe. It's like a lid on a container.  As long as it doesn't insert anything into the slot, it's a non issue.

As long as it's made out of non-conductive material, I don't see what the harm in using one would be.

Dell owns my soul.

Electrically these look totally fine for sure. I think the only risks with these would be that either when inserting them into the slot you might bend some pins in a bad way (the ones you linked look like they don't go deep enough for that) or that after you left it in there for a few years that they might decompose into something unpleasant like sticky goo, which might make the slot unusable. If they're made of actual silicone (you can feel this, silicone has this slippery feel to it), then that should not be an issue either.
