Snakes are known to eat carrion and drink from water that has fecal matter present in it in the wild so for a healthy snake, salmonellosis is a non issue, and if it were, they would be more likely to get it from eating the quail/chicks as it's mostly present in feces and on the shell of the egg rather than the eggs contents. If you wanted to offer eggs, I would advise whole and uncooked, but I don't see the benefit to doing so with a carpet python.
