The last one I opened up had a soldered MXM board.

Wait... they SOLDER the MXM card DIRECTLY TO THE BOARD?

I was surprised too! It was a system being returned from a field office in Asia. Instead of the pin header you'ed expect it was soldered pins!

The thing has a MODULAR MXM slot on the board there and populated, yet they SOLDERED the card to the board....
