Configuration rollback - changing WAN to PPPoE

Here is the scenario:

BR200-WP routers are initially configured at our HQ and they're connected via Eth0 (WAN) to the network and use auto-provisioning to get a generic configuration on them from HMOL. Once provisioned the team then edit the router and change Eth0 (WAN) to use PPPoE rather than DHCP and assign the PPPoE credentials. They then push this configuration change to the device.

My questions are:

1) Is a full upload required when changing Eth0 (WAN) from DHCP to PPPoE or will a delta change work?

2) What happens with the configuration rollback? Because after pushing the change the router will not be able to connect to HMOL until it's shipped to its remote location and connected to the PPPoE modem. Will the team end up with the routers rolling back their configurations?

Hopefully that makes sense!

You need to do a full upload or just do it through CLI.
Will this AP be still powered on until you ship it to site?  If you turn it off just after the AP comes back up it would not do config rollback. The device will wait for 10 minutes before it activates the rollback.
You may also issue command no config rollback enable and save config within this 10 minutes window. This will prevent the router to rollback the configuration.
