Can you explain why I can't smell it on outlets that aren't in use then? This isn't a normal smell of plastic and metal, it's the same smell as my previous burnt outlet only a lot fainter.

It might be slightly warmer in outlets in use and so have more off gasing. Maybe it’s from what’s plugged in since those cords are often smellier. Hard to say honestly.

that smell has a lasting odor, and the box, plate cover, etc. would still have it.
