i bet if they really wanted to Apple could connect to the device and see everything that has been installed on it. I would assume there is some type of data log file they could look at but the chances of them doing that are very very slim. as long as you restore, you should be fine.

Not a single employee at a Apple store would be able to tell that a iPhone has been jailbroken (of course it is jailbroken and never was restored via iTunes). They simply do not have the tools or software. Not sure there is even any software to tell. Now a unlock, yes, because permanent changes are being made to the phone when you do that.
