However, I'm still not sure this situation fits, as this isn't technically a "repair".

Due to a slight change in the 2014 NEC, these devices may actually be allowed in this situation. 334.40(B) Devices of Insulating Materials. Self-contained switches, self-contained receptacles and nonmetallic-sheathed cable interconnector devices of insulating material that are listed shall be permitted to be used without boxes in exposed cable wiring and for repair wiring in existing buildings where the cable is concealed..... See this answer for the older wording.
