    At first glance it looks like a 2-terminal SMD package. But there's
    what look like side terminals but AFAICT they're not soldered to the
    PCB. (Or am I mistaken about that?)

    Silkscreen says "FSxxxx". These are on a mini Intel motherboard.

    Fuse? Fusible Link? Or...?

    Thanks.

    Oops... there's that huge trace that goes right underneath the device.

    So these are 3-terminal packages.

    What are they?

    Thanks.

    Likely an LCL filter network. The center terminal is ground.

    Filters?
    Meter to see whether the heavy centre trace goes to GND.
