Hi JoB

I doubt that persimmons can be used as pollinators for walnut trees. Why? they belong to different family tree. Persimmon belonged to Ebenaceae family while walnut belonged to juglandaceae.

Non astringent persimmons like fuyu and hachiya doesn't even need pollinators to produce seedless fruits (parthenocarpic).

Though walnut is monoecious (produces both male and female flowers) cross pollination is needed because the flowers of both sexes doesn't necessarily open at the same time, hence, another walnut variety nearby is needed for a successful pollination. It doesn't need a persimmon tree which is from a different plant family altogether to pollinate it.
