If we are talking about the same thing,in the RAF we used to call it,solid WD40 ,and I have tried to buy it ever since I left the mob in 1979,without success,I did however manage to scrounge a well used tube from British Airways,they use it on Concord.

Dielectric grease is a non-conducting grease. Its main use is obviously to keep water out of electrics, but maybe more use to prevent condensation forming rather than keeping out rainwater. If you don't want grease melting and running about the plugs you will only need a thin smear on the rubber seal - so maybe WD40 would be enough?

I've seen small sachets of it in some microprocessor kits where it's used to prevent condensation on computer chip connectors. These were all American sourced. Does the grease have another name in UK?
