^^^ Let's see. I believe that the things on the wall in TOS's enginerring (with the klingons) are electrical conduits and control pathways, not small pipes for fluids.
The object in the middle of the floor (Klingon scene) has to do with power and dilithium crystals, not tanks of liquids.
So, just like the larger tanks in STXI contained the warp cores and not liquids.
The vertical cylinder in the TAS scene is unlikely to be filled with water.
Conjecture. And in fact, the coolant pipe from STXI is about the only thing in the Trekverse the mysterious clear pipe from TAS resembles.
The still from Final Frontier appears to be a Jeffries tube, similar to those we've seen in many Treks before. Except better lit, which makes sense. Did we see any Jeffries tubes in ST Eleven?
I see a corridor, packed entirely with pipes, none of which have any specified functions. I wonder what an open plan version of that section might resemble...
ST Eleven's set is admittedly bigger, but in no way "the same."

Sure looks it to me.
