Joining two or more different metals always cause oxidation due to electrolysis of the connections. I see this all the time, as those plastic connectors are very commonly used here. He is using them in a different way, but there are still several metals involved, and insulators also, and air between them possibly helping to cause those strange effects.
The oxidation factor is not the point.
