Factory reset does not unroot the system. I've done this multiple times.
I sent my rooted but factory reset KFHD back to amazon for a refund. I made sure to delete any files I put in system/apps and anywhere else in the system folders. The factory reset will not clear those files out.
I took the risk and I received a refund a couple hours after they received my device. Most likely it will go back to whomever refurbs their kindle fires and then it will be returned to full stock. I did not find any info so far as to unrooting the KFHD.
Might be different scenario if you sent it back for service.
PS. I made sure to drain the battery and turned off the device and packed it up. Also if you are using anything such as a secondary launcher, I would go back to KF launcher and then delete. Deleting it while using such might cause it to go into a force close loops. Same for keyboard, etc.
