Somewhere along the way there could be a "word of mouth" misunderstanding.
For FTTC the fibre goes either to a new cabinet near to the existing phone one, with the two cabinets then getting a copper link to merge phone and VDSL2, or it goes to an All-In-One that replaces the existing cabinet if there is one. The latter happening when the phone lines are fed directly from the exchange with no phone cabinet. (EO lines). The final stretch to the home is still copper in both cases.
For FTTP cabinets are not involved. Only underground aggregation points. (Glorified fibre junction boxes). Then the fibre to the premises may go completely underground or partly underground and partly via ordinary telegraph poles. However, the FTTC cabinets are also fed from aggregation points, and any particular aggregation point can feed both FTTC cabinets and FTTP.
