Push File pushes Vendor Configuration File repeatedly every few hours instead of once

I know 1970 is unix timestamp 0, these devices have no battery so the clock
goes back to 1970 every reboot until NTP syncs.

I just did a test push and the following is all I see in the CWMP log file:
2017-12-28T22:58:10.031Z [INFO] E48D8C-RB750-2obfuscated:
Inform; cpeRequestId=null informEvent="6 CONNECTION REQUEST"
2017-12-28T22:58:10.117Z [INFO] E48D8C-RB750-2obfuscated:
ACS request; acsRequestId="1609f58dfd8000" acsRequestName="Download"
2017-12-28T22:58:10.214Z [INFO] E48D8C-RB750-2obfuscated:
ACS request; acsRequestId="1609f58dfd8100"
2017-12-28T22:58:10.440Z [INFO] E48D8C-RB750-2obfuscated:
ACS request; acsRequestId="1609f58dfd8101"

The device reboots 5 seconds later, no more updates until it reboots.

Is the "Download" structure part of GenieACS (like a Virtual Parameter of
sorts) or is it actually on the device? I searched for information on it
and didn't really find much.
