Regarding returning your device, making sure everything is returned to stock is very important as you mentioned.
After you're done restoring your device to outta box set up with ODIN by installing the Samsung Stock Firmware tar, you want to remember to check the following:
- use Triangle Away by Chainfire to reset the bootloader to 0
The above has to be completed while you're still Rooted and you need the stock Kernel.
Read the TA thread so you know exactly what to do, if you didn't already.
After using Triangle Away, make sure everything is set tosstock.
In addition, TA doesn't change the Modified/Custom description in About deviceiin Settings. Only ODINing to Stock will.
- ODIN to stock
- check the Bootloader to make sure it doesn't say Custom and is set to 0 (mentioned above)
- boot into Recovery and make sure it's the stock recovery.
- check Device settings, About device and make sure it doesn't say Modified or Custom
If all the above checks out, you should be good to go
The above is a little checklist so that Samsung doesn't deny servicing your device and void your warranty
