You saw the information that is most meaningful. #2 didn't happen
because CM's, although they do have IP addresses, are basically just
bridges - a virtual wire that gets you into TWC's network. I'm not
familiar with how TWC handles data once it hits their network, but
there are a number of fairly standard architectures that would hide
your first hop/GW.
Just an FYI, I see the same thing with a static IP address on TWC
