Gaining mutations by failing to install CBMs?

How does that even work ? i could see getting a malfunctioning CBM, or health loss, but what’s got to do with mutations ? Arent bionics and mutations supposed to be 2 different paths ?

I think the explanation is supposed to be that some electrical/radioactive power source in the CBM damages your genes when you flub the installation.

I wish it was only negative ones.
