Two ideas for you.
1. Use Kilz, oil based, on the back of the cabinet and follow the directions on the can for how many coats.
2. Let the Kilz dry at least 3 days then use spray adhesive and glue a cheap shower curtain to the back.

Moisture will come out of the concrete walls so unless you build a real wall to mount them too you have to work with it. The Kilz will deal with any mold that might get past your inexpensive but effective moisture barrier. Best of all it is all hidden away behind the cabinet, out of sight, out of mind but doing it’s job. If you are careful and take your time you can make this get into the cleats. The cleats attached to the wall can be wrapped if you feel the need but this is probably overkill, it should be enough that they have the plastic on the back and the Kilz. I rec oil base because it has been my experience that it works better with the spray adhesive. I know it stinks. (laughing) Hope this is helpful.
