I'm not entirely sure of the answer to that.  I know that power-cycling the
modem doesn't change anything in that regard, and further than that I've never
asked about.  If I need a modem reset I just call the NOC with the serial
number on the modem, the modem lights go off for a few seconds, and when it
comes back the reset is complete.

The company supplies all of the modems for the customers as part of the
service (and you have to turn it in if you cancel the service, of course) and
the whole thing is centrally controlled, just like their digital cable TV boxes.
