Another box fill calculation question

I have a 32 cu. in. plastic J-box. There are no switches or receptacles in the box - it is purely for connecting wires. There are 6 12-2 cables coming into the box and they are held in place by the built-in tab clamps that you push the cable through.

So, the 6 cables have 12 conductors: 12x2.25=27. Add one for the grounds: 27+2.25=29.25. So I'm good, right? Do the wirenuts or built-in tab clamps count for anything?

Thanks,

Don
