We used outdoor flushmount lighting in our indoor closets. Electrician said it was fine.

The difference between indoor and outdoor lights is usually a matter of watertightness of the circuits... not a worry indoors, but of high concern outdoors. That just means that as said, outdoor fixtures can come inside, but inside fixtures shouldn't be used outside.
