"man mount" says:

    If you want to override mount options from /etc/fstab you have to
    use the -o option:

        mount device|dir -o options

as regards "remount" option it later says:

                 Attempt to remount an already-mounted filesystem.
                 This is commonly used to change the mount flags
                 for a  filesystem,  especially to make a readonly
                 filesystem writable.  It does not change device or
                 mount point.

Same man page:

       dev    Interpret character or block special devices on the

       nodev  Do not interpret character or block special
              devices on the file system.

While a filesystem is mounted "nodev", it can't have device special
files created on it.
