Sharepoint doesn't use model database

I just created a new site and my databases are allocated as data growing at 1 mb at the time and log files a 10 percent autogrow.  My model.mdf is allocated at 100 mb and  log file at 10 percent autogrow.  How can I force sharepoint to utilize model.mdf?   If I create database manually they're created according to model.mdf.

Thank You

What is the "model" database?

SharePoint stores content in Content DBs.

When you creating a database in sql server,  it uses model database to create the database.  How do you create content db with 100 meg autgrow?   I can change it in sql server,  but that's means that I need to do this manually every time.

You create the contentdb via the central admin GUI and then set the autogrow on the SQL side

I know that.  I was trying to avoid this step.  That means that I need to get our DBA's involved since in production we don't have access to sql server.
