   Yes,  eBay sellers are indeed covered by PayPal seller protection program if the seller 'ship the item to the shipping address listed on the PayPal Transaction Details page'.

 Additionally, regarding eBay buyer shipping address,
  1. eBay sellers are also protected by eBay if the tracking information show proof of delivery from a shipping company that displays:
   The recipient's address, displaying at least the city/state or ZIP code (or the equivalent) of the address listed in either the eBay Order details page or the PayPal Transaction Details page.

  2. Your application should use GetOrders call to ensure the order is in a completed status in Checkout for Order.CheckoutStatus.Status and then ship to the address ( which is also displayed in eBay Order details page) returned in OrderArray.Order .ShippingAddress container in GetOrders response for the buyer involved in the order.
