(b) was "retriggering" or "the voice is reset and the note gets played
from the top".

obviously there is no fixed rule about how complete the reset is, and
certainly hitting the head of a drum that is already oscillating will
cause the production of a different sound than hitting one that was at
rest. nevertheless, its still the case that in some fairly deep sense,
the voice *is* reset, and a new note is played from the top. the same
is true on the piano for example.
