So I sold my S4 but want to get them fully back to stock. I was under the impression that if I remove root then format it should remove the splash screen showing custom. It did not and now I need to figure out how to fix this. Any suggestions? Should I flash, via odin, a stock image?

You've got to revert any changes you made, unroot, then boot it and wait 10 minutes or so. The scanner will see that it's stock and reset the "Custom" flag.

It's far more reliable to just flash a stock ROM.
