Can mechanical samples be used for power-up testing or only for practicing reflow?

Description

No, you cannot use mechanical samples for power-up testing. Mechanical samples can only be used for practicing reflow.  The devices that are used are actual production test rejected devices. The mechanical samples could have any number of fabrication defects, including but not limited to shorts and opens of the pins.
