Not that I have seen any being made entirely of plastic but some existed with combined materials, in particular the 40 and 57mm VT fuzes.
Of course there is a lot of room for experimental stuff but many automatic gun systems cause an extreme high feeding stress on the cartridges and in particular on the fuzes which may touch gun parts during the feeding and ramming process so plastic would not be the first choice.

You may show us images or the document stating on this and we may say a bit more after viewing.
