Explanation:
I haven't found this in the dictionaries, but on one Web site (Google). This indicates that the term can mean mechanical as well as/or electrical connection: It contrasts "geschraube" with "gesteckte Ausführung":
>>Plattenregal (Standard)
Die Stahlrohrkonstruktion ist hochwertig beschichtet, dadurch kein Farbabrieb auf Ihren Platten. In Modulbauweise beliebig erweiterbar. Leichte Montage durch geschraubte bzw. gesteckte Ausführung. <<

Your client might well mean electrical plug-in connections, but without further context it might be well to word this so mechanical plug-in connections are not excluded.

Explanation:
I also think they mean plug-in connections as against hard-wired connections.
