As a rule of thumb, no.

Odd location for a gas line.

Flex should not pass through the bulkhead( frame) of a gas unit,


It should be solid pipe .

If that is CSST some jurisdictions allow it to enter into the vesibule


if it is protected by a strong grommet. (I don't think it's a good idea.)

Check with the locals for sure.

That system is entering on the side opposite the gas valve entry,

isn't it?

CSST and appliance connectors are NOT the same thing. We've beat this horse before.

CSST is a piping system. Appliance connectors are just that - appliance connectors. . .

. . . and some manufacturers and/or jurisdictions allow them to pass through the cabinet if protected by a grommet.

Jeff is correct about connectors, I'm not sure about the horse thing.
