This is very interesting that they are shooting 250-315 testing actuations. They seem to be learning and getting smarter with QC. This is very good news! Repair service is also improved.

In the past they possibly reset the number but now I think Nikon deliberately left the shutter count to reassure the buyer that proper QC was done on the camera. A marketing decision rather than an engineering one.

None of us knows for sure. What if the shutter count was supposed to be reset to zero after testing? Unless other camera models or many Df cameras have the same type of actuation count upon first usage, this could be another factory issue. Only time will tell.
