In a circuit-breaker, the right word is "terminals"...


Explanation:
...and "unmarked" or "unlabeled" can refer either to the terminals themselves or to their representation on a drawing or schematic diagram. (Literally, "non repérées" means "not designated by a reference number," which suggests that the terminals in question are in a drawing or schematic, rather than in the flesh (so to speak).) -- HTH!
