It's not that surprising really. The electrical length needs to be accurately determined to calculate the correct amount of upstream power back-off. The Lantiq dsl_cpe_control program has a command (llsg) to report the estimated loop length (actually it gives two different lengths for two different widths of wire).

Can you find line length from the HG612?

the closest thing is the attenuation which can allow you to guess the length.
