Is CPU paste on stock coolers electrically conductive or not? It is cooler to the CPU Ryzen 5 1600.

No, it is not electrically conductive.
Thermal grease - Wikipedia
I contacted with AMD via e-mail and they said the thermal paste has electrical conductivity.If you worry about overflowed thermal paste with the stock cooler seating look to my topic.

If overflowed paste is only on the lid and didn't touched to pins then you are safe.
well it has silver in it so um yup. its a compound of silver but there isnt alot in it . to be honest it really is just the same stuff you have in your garage called anti-seize, either copper or silver based. except anti-seize dont dry. thermal paste does a little bit..
