Not yet, no. The only non-connection related extra setting I added in
the MM support for now was the "option lowpower '1'" setting to
automatically go into low-power mode (RF off) when the interface is
set as down in netifd.

Adding support for band preferences wouldn't be difficult, though, it
would just involve calling --set-current-bands=[BAND1|BAND2...] before
the modem connection is launched. Same idea for selecting preferred
modes (e.g. 4G-only).

Patches welcome :)
