Spontaneous Reboot RT-AX86U

I realized my RT-AX86U router rebooted spontaneously last night. This has been very rare in the past, maybe once in a two-month period.
There was no power outage or anything in the system log to indicate why.

Under which conditions does the AX86 or any router decide to reboot?
Are there any additional log files to find the reason?

There should not be any spontaneous reboots. (outside of a power glitch)
You need to get off the BETA firmware listed and after you upgrade to newest, do a "default factory reset" and load setting from scratch.

Looking more into it, I believe there might've been a small power dip that only affected some devices.
