I agree that many metal lens mounts are screwed into plastic.  I dropped a large full frame Dslr with long lens attached once and the lens mount pulled right off of the body.  It was very plain that the screws were just into plastic.  After pulling the lens mount from a film camera I had as backup, I put a drop of glue on each screw and put them back in.  Never had another problem with it for the several years that I used that camera.  So  wouldn't have any problem with Sony's plastic mount.
