Default [Q] Odin Restore

If i odin back to stock mj7 will the padlock on boot be gone, would it trip my knox counter, and would it unroot my phone? By the way i am on mj7 rooted, want to be unrooted. Need to know because i want to trade in my phone.

Given that you want to trade it, full wipe MJ7 will do what you want. None of your data, no longer rooted, no custom flag.
If you're on the MDK bootloader and do that, then you're killing a kitten by doing that.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Do i just go into settings and do a factory data rest?

No, a reset won't do it. You'll need to re-flash using Kies or Odin.
Edit: Or, plug your phone into your Windows PC and use the Verizon recovery assistant.
