I mean, to an extent you can't use what shows like TNG etc established because by going back to the TOS time frame you're going back to a period before anything from these series were established anyway.

The film is about TOS - not the later shows.
I see it this way: TOS is part of TREK. TREK had thrumming warp cores. Even ENT's engine was a version of a thrumming warp core. ENT predates TOS in the Trek universe.... So there is nothing consistent about NuTrek's engine room. I know this little nit-pick, maybe "pet peeve", of mine does not effect the overall story, but in regards to feeling like I was watching "trek"... it goes a long way. I was actually surprised when I realized how this sort of thing bothered me.
