I used to do datacenter build-outs with the punch down blocks you're talking about and my last job (for a buddy to get his setup) I used a block style - this is typically what they use for homes since they weren't sure where or how the rack was going to be mounted - since the cabling is done so early in the build, I didn't have the build out done in my head so I was fine with this type of wall mount - i could have put the cables through the hole in the bottom of the panel and out of the wall but left them - I'll just get a saw, cut a pass through from the door down so I can shut the doors.
