Sound like rubbish to me

None of my new cameras (and I've had lots) have started with anything other than 1

If it starts with any other number, it has had a card in it and fired, quite possibly by the store that sold it to you to make sure it worked before they sold it (so not really used...)

My CPS dealer does not check, but ships directly to me.

Either way, you can format the card and reset the count if you wish
