Yes, you understand correctly but it is very rare and eventually you have to put your foot down. It's happened to me once since I started working here in August.
And yes, the clock starts over.
I've actually had some ask for revisions after the escrow has been auto-released. -_-

So do I understand that correctly that a client can ask for revisions limitlessly ( is that a word or did I just invent it) and every time they ask the 14 days start again after re submission?
Yes, but I have seen mods say before that the freelancer can initiate a dispute if this seems to be happening in bad faith.
re: "So do I understand that correctly that a client can ask for revisions limitlessly"
You are correct.
This is what I refer to as the "fixed-price loophole."
It is a weakness in the overall Upwork system.
There are clients who are bad people who attempt to use this loophole to NOT pay for the work that they hired a freelancer to do. It is a form of stealing.
For fixed price projects, I clearly state in my proposals that my price includes up to two rounds of minor revisions and if they need more than that, they'll have to open a new hourly contract. So far, I've only had to actually make this switch with one client, but they were a doozy; they ended up requesting over 100 rounds of revisions to their 12-page document, over a 1-year period. (I shake my head when I see other freelancers offering unlimited revisions - I should have sent that client over to them.)
