As I said earlier, I called Nikon and they confirmed me that they changed the whole body. It's a new body (well, almost, the shutter count was ~400). They can take the serial number plate from the old body and put it in the new. They actually change the internal ("firmware" or "software") serial number as well but in my case, they forgot...
