Not saying they don't know what they are talking about, but if it's brand new equipment, particularly vdsl then I find that hard to believe from what I've been exposed to. Vdsl does fallback to adsl mode for adsl modems in which case the dslam has to have an ATM interworking function, but the uplink to the dslam would still be Ethernet, fiber or copper. 

Did you happen to get a peek in the cabinet?
