On the other hand, they may not have sufficiently the thermal contraction mismatch between the connector and the PCB (or whatever it is soldered to).

I can imagine what are you expecting:
The connection failing had been done with Pb-free solder, such as SAC type.
I am not sure. Work on the Super Collider might have started before RoHS becoming effective.
Besides, the whole application is exempt from it.
Finally, considering the really low temperatures in the collider ring tunnel,
Tin Plague may be the problem one should have considered possible.
Anyway, as you say, an 8D report on this gigantic solder joint issue—costing Millions—
would be utmost interesting.
Possibly, with the power of the Group behind you, you could get a copy?

Wonder if we will ever get a failure analysis on this. Interesting that the whole thing is kept super cold:
