Is the female fitting nested into a hole that keeps it from rotating while you tighten the male end, or is there room for a multi-tooth lockwasher over a flat washer?

Just curious, are the plastic portions of the fasteners made of nylon, or of something else? I think nylon is the most breakage resistant plastic used for screws and nuts, but while it can be impressive, it isn't as strong as stainless.
