They fail

I redid my whole house from galvanized to uponor pex, the stuff you expand over the fitting and its material memory shrinks it back onto the fitting. I had the plumbing inspector over for the inspection and asked about them. He referred to them as something to use temporarily in his opinion. My father in law had his water service fail at the meter, or rather at the shark bite fitting used at the meter, it just let go.
