Plastic plugs? Do you mean the wire nuts?

There's no problem with using wire nuts to extend wires when you replace a panel.

I'm not sure about the wires at the bottom of the panel. If they're unused wires that aren't connected to a power source, I think it's fine to have them just lying there with electrical tape over the ends. If, on the other hand, they're live, then the electrical tape seems inadequate to me.

You've noticed, of course, the burned white wire at mid left.
