I checked. Even at the furthest XLR there is continuity. The XLR chassis themselves are metallic and ground to the panel even without screws. That's also how they have the quick connect right below pin 1 built into the XLR.
Good, am using the Ghent-supplied XLRs and there is no bare metal on them or around the mounting holes. Comparable issue for the back panel. There is no built-in grounding. Know you are using different case.
Hard to tell with certainty from pics, but any mains quick connects should be insulated. If the connector comes loose, it should not be able to conduct to other surfaces. Even if they are connected and not insulated, can casually touch with tools or other parts.
