I'm sure the answer is already out there 100x over, but what do motherboards with fixed CPUs class as?

It depends on the size of the CPU, the class of motherboard, I/o etc.
This one will probably fall into large socket along with most laptop motherboards.

Looks like an All-in-one which split the large/small socket category almost 50/50.

So pretty much a gamble; place on "red or black" and let it ride? would I lose or gain anything if I fired up the workstation and melted that puppy off?

I'm quite sure this one is going to fall into the large socket category since it's a condensed (eg laptop) board with full options and a soldered Xeon CPU. Where I'd put it myself.

Removing the cpu would give you a peripheral board (at best) and a pinless CPU.

I’m sorry if I confused you. I try to put both a specific quote and a general notation in posts where a board (type) may get different scrap classes on different boards.
All-in-one boards are such a class where most will be either small or large socket depending on both the size of the board AND the included components and options.
