They should have reset the shutter count if they replaced the shutter. There should also have been paperwork that accompanied the replacement, even if it was at an event. Since it was out of warranty, he would have had to pay for it, and there would be a paper trail. Ask for paper proof of the shutter replacement.

When I worked for Nikon more than a decade ago, I worked the NPS trailer 3 or 4 times at major sports events. All repairs were free of charge and I don't remember giving anybody any paperwork. It is -- or was -- an on-the-spot service for working pros, to keep them shooting, done quickly and informally. Unless things have changed -- and they might have -- it wouldn't surprise me at all if there's no paperwork.

Yes, as a shooter at major events, I have had amazing work done to my cameras by Nikon without any formal paperwork.
