Hadn't heard of the PlusNut before. It's a Rivnut (threaded insert) with longitudinal cuts. When compressed, it creates "wings"—just like a molly bolt—rather than the round shoulder of a typical threaded insert.

Any threaded insert should benefit from sealant. Well nuts, being rubber, aren't as strong and require drilling a bigger hole, but do a pretty good job of sealing around the edge.
