Term to perm appointment?

So when I was hired into my phase II, I was hired into a term position that can be non-competitively converted into a permanent position after 2 years of service. I was skeptical that I would be automatically converted so spent quite a bit of time networking in my agency and landed a permanent position through the open process (USAjobs, selection, interview, offer) and now just waiting for my firm offer. I'm curious if there are others in phase II that are in similar situations, were you converted automatically from a term to a perm after 2 years if you had > 2 years of commitment? I'm curious to those (if any) that weren't converted to permanent, did you try to leave without finishing your phase II since it's not ideal being in a term/time limited position?
