Default Is oem Ignitor grounded by its body

Probably not the most descriptive title, but the question i have is this: Is the oem ignitor grounded on the bracket it sits on? the reason why i am asking is because i want to remove the bracket and just tuck the ignitor away. Will this cause issues?

I am like 98% sure it is not grounded to the body. One of my friends has his 99 coils off the bracket and zip tied to things and they have worked fine like that for the past 6 months.

The igniter on the 1.6 cars is grounded through the black wire at pin F.

You'll be fine.
