Yes, that is my understanding, at least for some of the SMs built, maybe all of them, but certainly all that I have seen.
And I believe the issue is that over time the screw sealant deteriorates. Amel used sealant on the screw to keep saltwater out. When saltwater gets inside, the metal plate will rust into nothing.
