Yes. Since you're rooted, there's nothing stopping you from mounting the stock ROM and changing things.
If you're not messing around, and don't mistakenly flash something over stock, it's not likely to be altered, so nothing to worry about.

You want root? OK, so you just changed your phone by adding su. It's custom. The scanner that Samsung uses to detect a modified phone sees that and sets the "Custom" flag.

If you don't want Custom to show up, uninstall Safestrap, unroot, and perhaps flash a stock ROM. You won't be rooted, but won't show as Custom any more.

Your choice.
