Yes, fusion splices at the SPN, and there may be something at the home - but whether internal or external isn't certain.
I think the fibre used in connectorisation comes in two forms:
- For DP-SPN, the fibre used is corning SST with additional strength members, that helps get past blockages in the distribution
side, not the drop side. This likely replaces COF 201 cable, not BFT.
- For DP-Home, the fibre is Corning with Fast Access "peelable" fibre, so may be something like their ROC drop cable, fitted with the optitap connector.
This is the UKNOF talk where Neil McRae talks of both the G.Fast trials and the connectorised FoD trial, where he specifically mentions SST and fast access:

By the sounds of it, their two biggest problems are blocked ducts - hence the use of SST - and the time/kit needed to perform the blowing when doing a job for a single customer.
The fibre that @MrS mentions, where the black jacket can be peeled leaving a white indoor inner, doesn't quite fit with either of those products used that way. There is an indoor/outdoor variant of SST that does behave like that, and can be used on the drop cable portion instead of the ROC cable - but it then doesn't offer the "fast access" facility.
That indoor/outdoor cable might mean there is no splice needed in the home, if the fibre can be presented into a connector for the ONT.
