I have a couple of S4 and a stack of B5's in my environment. I basically want to know when I should expect a reboot of the device when issuing firmware.

At reset.  Uploading the firmware to the switch does not automatically reboot it.

You have to actively say yes to a reboot prompt as shown in the following article

Once you verify the image has been downloaded on the switch (by doing a DIR and seeing the image ) the next step would be to type
set system boot and image name then enter
The prompt will ask you if this is what you want to do!!
You say yes
