So assuming the patch cable I'm using is correctly wired its Orange and white pin 1 to xlr pin 3
Orange pin 2 to xlr pin 2 , and brown and brown and white pins 7 and 8 to xlr pin 1. and if only 2 wires are used, the connection to pin1 on the xlr will be redundant and have no effect.

and if I build an xlr3 terminator its 120 ohms across pin 2 and 3.

All 3 pins of the XLR are used:

XLR pin 1 to RJ45 pins 7 & 8 (brown & white/brown)
XLR pin 2 to RJ45 pin 2 (orange)
XLR pin 3 to RJ45 pin 1 (White/Orange)

As long as the cable is T568B standard, T 568A would be green and green/white
