You need to really ask your provider, but any reputable provider would not do that.

You're bringing up other things too.

Are they doing layer 2(or is it layer 3?) to aggregate 2 uplinks at the switch level?

More than likely it's going to just be 24x or 48x sharing 1Gbps or 2Gbps(depending if they're doing aggregate or not).
