Your installer is either misinformed or lying.  At worst you'll have
to schedule another installation (with a different installer).

For now, point to the ethernet port on the ONT and say "There it is,
ethernet.  Now please run the CAT-5e like I asked."  Have your
installer call in to their dispatch if they resist after that.
