They own the network and modem. They can troubleshoot the modem and network with access. Whats your concern?

Problem is im used to have the Router spoofed so always using a different external IP than they give me from scratch and if they notice this when having more control over the Modem

Whether they have access to the modem or not they can tell. It's their network and a sniffer or other network analyzation tool can learn this as well. You are not keeping anything from them by refusing to use their modem. As I said earlier they own the network you just pay for the privilege of using their bandwidth according to Terms Of Use contract.
