Ah I see. Yes. Given that all bets are off, it's hoping for the best ;)

If write caching is disabled (and confirmed to truly be disabled), it should
not be needed. So as an added step beyond disabling write caching, it doesn't
feel particularly useful.
If write caching is still enabled, synchronous writes won't help except
perhaps to lower the statistical probability of running into problems (that's
just a guess).
