The fuel in the wings is confined to sections of the wings that are lined with plastic, possibly CFRP, a carbon reinforced plastic, as it could then serve as further strength-reinforcement. When the top is put on the wing all four plastic surfaces of each tank are joined.Re: In Plane Sight.

In any case, if the fuel is in plastic containers... why on earth does the girl in the video get into a wing for sealing the joints with a spray? Even more, how would they fit the containers into the wing once it is already mounted?
You can see the interior of the tanks, the partitions that lessen shifting of fuel when the plane banks, etc here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giEMzfmQoqs
