Looking at that picture tells you that they don't. The potentiometers are in 
fact not mounted on the PCB, but "floating" on some spacer and if you look 
closely you'll see that the phenolic of potentiometers is actually quite 
strained since they were apparently soldered in before being fastened to the 
panel.  If you want this to work, you should be mounting all switches and 
potentiometers to a scaffold, then fitting the pins through the PCB, fixing 
the PCB to the scaffold too and then solder all through-hole components.
