If you see all the same names, yeah, it's plagiarism.

I can't create a movie with Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

Obviously. But I doubt that they would use 100% all the same names. And no, you cant copyright a set of general words (Such as OnPlayerConnect)

You created a Mod that is compatible with San Andreas (but doesn't actually use San Andreas' code)
They created a Mod that is compatible with SaA:MP (but doesn't actually use SA:MP's code)

It was probably a bad example. The terms such as "OnPlayerConnect" are vast terms. They're going to be used often because of their ease. For example, you wouldn't call it "OnPlayerConnectToServer" just to avoid copyright.

If you're using a lot of the same terms with similar intentions for the same, or a similar game then it would probably be seen as plagiarism.

If the names are unique enough. If they aren't, probably not.

I'm not claiming to own "OnPlayerConnect." But there'd be a point where so many names are copied, that you could say this work is derived from another work.

This is all theoretical discussion. But I feel confident saying that any client or server compatible with sa-mp would necessarily have to violate our copyright, and therefore "open mp" would have to ask my permission.

Their client will not be compatible with SA:MP Servers and clients.

Being compatible doesn't violate copyright.
