I would not worry too much about the bolts; the epoxy bonding/sealing job they did was excellent. In addition IIRC the bolts are galvanized steel so they won't suffer from crevice corrosion like a stainless bolt would. The bain of non stainless steel fasteners is oxygen getting in and promoting corrosion; but since the bolts are sealed from above and below there should be little oxygen getting in there.
