There's simply no way of knowing why the camera was originally returned and whether or not NikonUSA actually did anything of substance to the camera.

Based on what I've read, and the very low shutter counts, it is unlikely that Nikon did anything more than turn them on...if that. Refurbishing seems to amount making sure everything is in the box and sending them back out again. That doesn't necessarily mean they'll be any worse than new products, but it might raise the risk, since they may have been rejected for a specific reason that Nikon won't catch with their cursory check.

Pure and unsubstantiated speculation.
