I don't understand how a replacement chip could be epoxied in, and no soldering is required.

The James Lao chip (from http://eadpt.com/en/), set to 300 2.8, just reports this to the camera. The chip does not need to be connected to the aperture encoder. The camera does not need to know the aperture actually set on the lens, in order to operate. The true aperture value will just not be in exif.
