    Which specific Wago connectors are you referring to?

    If the room is to be converted to a bathroom, the sockets and the cabling need to be completely removed, not just 'blanked off'.

    They would then likely not be in a "safe Zone" depicted by an accessory ie the socket so not allowed.

    Those connectors and others like them are only maintenance free when correctly installed into a suitable maintenance free enclosure.
    Cables must remain in zones defined by the accessories, so just hiding them in the wall is not permitted.

    The cables need to be removed completely.
