No, SU and its binaries are files needed to execute root, but not to obtain it. The process of running a root-exploit for our phone gives you the root capability and then the Developer [may] include the Su file and binaries.

You have the MF3 on AT&T
(I am not sure from your posts about that), then it appears that your question has been asked and answered before, perhaps not as clearly as you need. . . Please look at post #381
in "New Root Method for AT&T Samsung Galaxy S 4 (OTA MF3)" and found at link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...t#post44598687
Of course, I may have missed a better post, but it appears to me that there is NO UNROOT METHOD
for the MF3 versions locked on AT&T. The locked bootloader/fixed-exploit
not only prevents rom-switching but also prevents using conventional un-root methods
(like using Odin to flash a stock rom) to work. (Please also see post #121
in the thread you already mentioned (above).
On the other hand, if you are NOT locked,
then the advice provided by jd1639
is spot-on and will work!)
OK, sorry I can't help more, Good Luck!
Oh. . . I am not sure, but perhaps you could do a factory reset, but I am not sure that would accomplish much. (Probably just reset your rooted phone and clear out your data).
