paperclip reset doesnt reset everything?

I have a USG-100, how come a paperclip reset doesn't reset everything? I noticed for example my name of the zyxel registration page somethimes stays 9and sometimes doesn't) but no i'm noticing that the graphics aren't resetting.

what gives? should factory fresh reset.....reset everything?

As long as you hold it in for approx 10 secs and upon approval the sys light etc starts blinking the router is reset to factory defaults of the firmware you have installed at the time. Confirm its actually resetting. The admin access is set back to admin and 1234 for example. The interfaces will all be set back to default as will the admin section of the system pages etc.

it resets the password - but like I said .....other things aren't being cleared entirely.

wondering if its a cache issue?

The paper clip reset applies a default system-default.conf (which includes the defaults). Nothing else gets re-set or erased. Your saved config files will stay on file system so do certificates.
