I'd say that in general "it depends".  If the chip is reset, it will go
back to its default values.  If the machine firmware writes its settings
on every boot, then you will see the firmware values instead.  Cold boot
or power-on will almost certainly result in the firmware values being
written.  Warm boot or reboot might not - I have seen the values that I
set in a previous boot being retained across reboot.

However, when NetBSD runs, we don't check to see if it's a cold or warm
start, so we should assume that the "wrong" values have been set by the
