I got talking to a guy recently and among other things he said that when using connector blocks he secures them to whatever they are housed in. For example joining neutrals or earths in the box of a light switch if using the looping method there or joining singles in a conduit box etc. A quick forum search shows a lot of people do. I must admit I have seen it done and thought in the examples above it was a bit of overkill. What do others do and is there actually a requirement? If the cables could be prone to movement then I suppose there is an arguement for it but in the back of a switch box, they ain't going too far if you ask me. I see no way of securing wagos and they are widely used as a replacement of connector blocks.
