Yes it does, triangle away can read it though. On the I9500 the partition containing the count can still be read, just not written to. If you wrote an application to read and parse the mmcblk0boot0 partition on your phone you could view the counter as well. There is little point though.
Alternatively you could just dump it and read the results from an hex editor.
So yes, it's there, just hidden from pain sight.
