When GlassFish is updated through the update tool in GlassFish, does the domain.xml file get written to?

I ask because while trying to specify a specify IP address for glassfish, by editing or changing the default 0.0.0.0 address attribute through the Admin console for network listeners, admin service and JMX Connector. I restarted GlassFish and it restarted, only not solving the problem I was faced with. I then proceeded to install all the available add-ons restarted my GlassFish and I was presented with a log in screen I couldn't get past (wasn't accepting GlassFish default password - and I had not set one). I had, in the past, experienced this before when I tired to modify the domain.xml file , while trying to add the address attribute directly to the file. So, I knew it was caused by a configuration error and replaced domain.xml with a copy of the original (backed up) and GlassFish started fine. But I'm not sure if the update process makes changes in the domain.xml file, hence I would have lost the modifications.

Thanks.
