In general, the resolution and extent of "new" raster maps derived from raster 
processing modules, are the ones of the current region (aka computational 
region) which are set by the user with the "g.region" module.

Not from "within" the r.reclass module, and, in general not "within from" 
almost all raster processing modules. It is g.region that controls that.

Right!  This will not be necessary, of course, if the user has properly set 
from the beginning...

g.region rast=Some_NETCDF_Band -p

Best of success with your work,
