Are you sure that the last few metres aren't fibre? A fibre cable with rugged sheath looks quite like coax from any more than a couple of feet away.

I can imagine them installing fibre to a splitter or CBT per floor, then fibre drops into individual flats.

They could of course have ONTs in the service area and Cat5 to premises, but I'd be very surprised in that case.
