Yep, I did all of that. Exact procedure:
- Reset flash counter using triangle away
- full unroot using SuperSU
- reboot immediately into Odin mode (system status says "Official")
- reboot immediately into recovery, do a factory reset
- reboot immediately into Odin mode (system status still says "Official")
- reboot immediately into recovery, do ANOTHER factory reset (because I'm anal that way)
- reboot immediately into Odin mode, (system status STILL says "Official")
- reboot normally, go through normal first-time setup, go into settings, check Device status... it says "Custom"
- reboot into Odin mode, system status now says "Custom"
- reboot normally, stupid open padlock is there again with the word "Custom"
- countless reboots later, it still says "Custom"

Nope, none. They're all still there. Like I said, I'm still running the bone stock image, never flashed a ROM, and I never edited the image. I only use root for things like GMD S-pen control, Titanium Backup, and FS Trim.
What's really annoying is that damn open padlock is never there while the system really IS modified, it only shows up when I unroot and everything is back to stock. I call it irony.
Would region lock be affecting this? I disabled the region lock many moons ago using RegionLock Away. Does that survive after a factory reset, and would it cause my device status to show up as Custom?
