I have construction photos of the house being built, and they showed metal studs, also, when I test drilled, I did not hit wood. You have a very interesting point, so I pulled the house plans, and the section for a 'typical' outside wall does state firing strips, however the construction photos show metal between the insulation, so I guess mine is different.

I just mounted a 43” on an interior wall. I discovered metal stubs. I used a tilting mount as the cantilevered design was not recommended. Found center of metal stud with small magnet that found drywall screws and then found exact center with 4pn finish nail. Used 4 snap toggles, 2 in stud and 2 in drywall only. Worked great. 1/4” snap toggle uses 1/2” metal bit.
