Are the modification indices (MI)generated for models that have used MLM estimation (or MLR for that matter) accurate? Since adjustments need to be made when nested model comparisons are made with this estimator, it got me to wondering if the MIs deserve the same consideration, or does MPlus handle this automatically?

Yes, the MIs for MLM and MLR correctly take into account the asymptotic covariance matrix for the parameter estimates which is also used for the SEs. You get different MIs with those estimators than you get with ML.
