Honestly, if it's not leaking, then leave it alone.

The male plastic connector can break because the plastic is too thin at a certain point, so it's worth replacing with the metal one. But unless you screw in the female too tightly to the fuel pump base plate (tapered threads), then it'll be fine.

Note that the fuel pump base plate has been known to crack and leak (which is probably why they tried to seal it externally), but the only fix to that is a whole new fuel pump assembly for $465.
