Do I need to plate the mounting holes?
When putting mounting holes for screws on a pcb, should we plate the holes or not?
If the screw is used to ground the board, then you need to plate the hole.
The pcb builder may mistakingly not plate all the holes for small chance, I'd make all the holes plated.
A mounting hole should be a bit bigger than the screw that it will fit, the coating material of the hole's internals does not matter at all. So it is no need to plate the mounting holes.
