Having sent you the shutter count form what I use (ShutterClicks) I have had spot on counts with all of my camera bodies and having done all of the firmware up dates I can't see how Nikon can say the the error in shutter actuations might be down to firmware updates.
Just use the camera and stop worrying about something you have no control over.
