picked up phone this morning from carphone warehouse, knox counter still at 2, but has official samsung firmware ANG2 (all white text when entering download mode)

The report that came back was "no fault found, upgrade to latest firmware"

Nothing was mentioned about the device being rooted etc.

I'm guessing whether or not a store/repair centre repairs a rooted phone under warranty is under their discretion, even though the T&C's say otherwise.
