If the above is true, is there anything else left to rely on other than a totally blind trust in the seller?

Those are pretty old references ... but to my knowledge, still true of the RX10IV. Thus the answer is no.

I will say there might be a shutter count recorded in EXIF with each image file and/or stored somewhere in the camera, but so far I know of no software that can recognize and read it if it's there.

It may or may not be recorded internally (who knows?), but it's apparently not written in the exif.

I'd suggest that the best way to see if an RX camera is used is to examine the body very carefully. The RX10 soft rubber grips soon show wear and finger-nail marks, and the metal edges get shiny.
