Those connectors have been around a long time and work VERY well. They are code everywhere and have been used in just about every commercial building for decades now - they are dead reliable.
They do need to be in a junction box when used with 120VAC.
They are NOT the same kind of connection as used in RV outlets that effectively work like Scotch-locks.

I’ve been using crimp connectors with adhesive coated shrink tubing for wire smaller than 4 gauge.

They use the same style of jab in connector terminals on some switches and receptacles. Less then desireable connection.
Rated for different gauges of wire but may not work well with small and large wire.
I believe these are rated by code to allow to be covered in a wall without a J-box. In essence rated same as continuous wire by code.

Sorry I don’t even need to look, code requires access to all wiring splices. You can NOT bury in walls!

14g wire in a hole that can take 12g starts fires. Ask any insurance claims adjuster.

Bought a new house in 93, they had the POS "stab n jab" receptacles and switches. I replaced every one with screw down connector type. Had several issues before replacing them.
