Saw some similar junctions recently. Why worry about fireproof enclosures or connectors, when you can use plastic and not need to worry about screwing on a lid.

Conductors don't appear as though they were ever pushed into that box.

That looks like fp200 fire alarm monkey cable.

12, maybe 24v. Untidy, but dangerous?

At least they used IP rated glands

Wagos are great but I've heard many people say "they are enclosed so don't need an enclosure". But its better than connector blocks wrapped in tape that used to be the norm before I guess!
Connector blocks wrapped in tape was always the best way for someone to bodge up a job so they could finish early on a Friday (or any other day)

people that don’t care about the quality of their work and are only interested in the payment will always cut corners like that. Wago‘s have just made it a bit easier for that type of person to just “make it work“ so they can go home early
