It may or may not reset EVERYTHING. I just never tried this "secret" reset. If you wish to be the lab rat who will test it first, you can try these steps...
Be warned that this "reset" is NOT intended for public use! I'm not responsible for any damage caused by the following steps!!!
- Switch the mode dial to Scene Mode.
- Press and hold the FN2 + Play button for a sec or two >> you should get a message "INITIALIZE THE SETTING".
- Press YES to start the reset procedure.
That's it! If your camera exploded or simply extended its legs and run away, don't say I did not warn you! If the camera survives, please let us all know what exactly it did.

I mean, if I tell you the secret, anyone skilled enough will be able to change the appropriate EXIF tag and we will lost the last way how to find the actual shutter count. But once the camera is "cleaned" all images taken since then will contain incorrect (reset) shutter count as well. So the only way how to find the actual shutter count is to check the photos taken before the reset.
On the other hand, I don't think the actual shutter count means much.
If the camera is heavily used, there will be some wears and tears around the body.
