As far as I know, the flash counter only increases when you flash a custom firmware/recovery/kernel.
But when you flash a stock firmware through Odin, the flash counter shouldn't increase.
My devices:

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S III I9300 / Paranoid Android 4.42 (4.4.4) / Boeffla-Kernel 2.3

Tablet: Nexus 7 (2013) / Stock 4.4.4
