RE: Wiring outlet box

If you take note the picture references NEC code. While it does show a metal conduit, in housing it is only required where the cable would otherwise be exposed, I.E. up a wall into the joists (again NEC code and BOCA), therefore no promise that it is grounded. I'm aware the picture does not show the ground wire connected but if the insulating tabs are removed with the ground wire connected to the box or the receptacle (I prefer the receptacle)both are considered grounded.
Perhaps that is why the OP's electrician wasn't concerned about grounding the box.
