Except for the largest plugs in the oil oil gallery across the top of the motor I'm not sure that you need to remove the other plugs. The gallery I'm talking about goes front to back along the top right side of the case.

I had a case prepped by a machine shop once and they removed every plug and put in threaded plugs. I seem to remember that the smaller plugs all lead to places I could get to without removing the plugs.

Since your machinist has already removed them you'll need to have new plugs made. I would "stake" the edge of the large gallery plugs as extra insurance.
