All depends on head space, if you have a thermowell probe going through the lid only the main stem of the thermowell might be in contact with the ferment, whereas if your thermowell is situated lower down (below liquid level) everything is in contact. As long as everything is cleaned properly before use, it shouldn't be a problem eitherway. An externally mount temp probe would I agree negate any issue, although I am still a firm believer that you should be measuring the actual ferment inside rather than the stainless vessel itself.

I see BrewUK are stocking, what appear to be, identical conical fermentors as Brew Builder now: http://www.brewuk.co.uk/ss-standard-conical-16.html

I'm still waiting to see the cooling coil solution for these units before making a decision.

BrewUK have been getting a lot of things in stock that look like they've come straight from HBB... Same prices too! :-\

Just heard back from BrewUK actually, apparently they are the same fermenters...
