Interesting question.
Barring the Switchable modifier or specific circumstances I agree it cant really be turned off.
I would base the initial NPC reactions on the reaction roll without the modifier and then add in the modifier.
Example: Roll 10 is Neutral but with +3 becomes Good.
So the effects are mostly as if rolled a Good reaction but the attitude is as if it were only Neutral. This avoids penalizing the player who spent as much on it as if they had Charisma but gives a different attitude for roleplaying purposes.
Over time the reaction can be upgraded with good treatment, indicating they trust her more but still have that underlying fear.
