The same problem seems to exist on ramips, I believe since the musl transition. The reboot command does not reboot awm002; reboot -f still works.

This bug is strange. I did many tests.
How it looks like when you use most recent trunk with luci:

You login as root with ssh into openwrt and write "reboot" and press enter. You can see after about 3 seconds really quick flash of all lights and the power-led goes quickly off and then on again. -> working fine

You use luci and press on the reboot button. Same behavour like "reboot" in command line -> works fine.

You use sysupgrade firmware update file (will be pushed upstream in some minutes) and uncheck the "keep settings". It flashes and reboots fine. Power led goes quickly off and then on again while all leds light up quickly once. -> works fine. Nearly same behavour like normal reboot.

And now you select the problematic function. You just select in luci to reset the config. It then takes really long time (longer then flashing new firmware with sysupgrade) and in 1 out of 10 tries it reboots(power led shorf off and on). In some cases it hang for minutes. In some cases it hangs and then it seems like somethng like a kernel panic happens or something like that and it does a warm-reboot - the power-led never goes off but it have rebootet sometime.

I think this bug have to be analyzed with a serial connector.
