That actually makes sense.  If I remember correctly, they have to take the entire board and sensor out of the camera to replace the shutter.  When you do that, you de-calibrate the factory installation of the sensor (hence the AF). Any shims or adjustments get mangled when you remove the sensor from the camera to get at the shutter.

So when everything is put back together you have to re-calibrate the AF to match the re-installed sensor.
