Indeed. and the ones specifically mentioned
are embedded in a concrete slab, for heating
purposes. One infers they are not, here,
insulated, either thermally or electrically.
Concrete is a good conductor (of both
electricity and heat). If in contact with the ground
(may be thermally insulated) would make a nice rf
ground (huge area....). My concern is that stray
RF can ge back, via the heating system, to Other Places.

A Really Bad Place to inject RF into the heating system
I'd think.... Unless it were abandoned....

In such an installation, they would be.
