Do they check it for what? They won't just show up to your house to inspect it. But if you send it back with a warrent yclaim they could potentially deny it based on Knox. That hasn't been happening much so far, but they technically could.

Please use the search feature to find how to root. The information is readily accessible.
Do you want insanely better battery drain when your phone is idle? Check out this thread!

I mean like if I turn it in for the jump to get the s5, I already have a warranty and insurance but if I root and then unroot, will tmobile check the knox count?

Probably not.

The S4 you trade in will get factory refurbished anyway and (theoretically) have firmware completely reflashed, which will wipe KNOX out, letting them resell that phone as a refurb. (No, you can't do that by reflashing firmware. But Samsung can.)

So T Mobile is unlikely to care. And the guy working the T Mobile store is unlikely to even know to check about KNOX.
