The IDC connector cuts through it as you pushed the wire between them. That’s why I posted what IDC stands for. It ensures no uninsulated wire can be touched by any other conducting item.
Professional Krone tools even snip off the protruding part of the wire as well.
AIUI stripping back the insulation can also cause the final contact to be imperfect, though personally I don’t see why it should.
