Serial port mismatch

I doubt this has anything to do with any part of RAS we have access to, but: has anyone seen where a modem type device (internal cellular) somehow thinks it is attached to COMx and in fact it is COMy for x<>y? Device Manager doesn't see what the phonebook entry sees (somehow)!

Somehow one of my coworkers got a (fortunately testing only) machine set up that way. Also, it seems to have seen 5 tokens of the internal cellular modem somehow (devicename #n). Don't know how that would happen - and I thought I at last understood the duplicates!

Had to reimage it, because even a new phone book entry would mismatch the COM virtual comport.
