Hard to say without checking at the indications sent by the modem. I'd
suggest you to try running with the mbim-proxy setup; i.e.:

# /usr/libexec/mbim-proxy --verbose

And then in another terminal run your mbimcli commands with the "-p"
option so that all the commands go through the proxy. Don't run
mbim-network while the proxy is running.

This will let you see all TX/RX commands in the proxy, and among other
things, you should also see the indication that the modem generated
when it got network-disconnected.
