Factory reset - does it reset the file numbers ?

If I do a factory reset, will it "zero" the file name / file number sequence ?
All the manual states is:
"To reset all settings except the time, date, and a few others, highlight [Full] and press Q."
Perhaps "a few others" includes the name/number sequence ?

Factory resets have traditionally reset the file name/sequence no. since the old 43/rds days. I don't have the EM10 MkII to try it on (mine is a Mk I) but I did do a factory reset on my EM-1 Mk I last year and it reset the file name and sequence no. as expected.

That's a pain. I'd rather prefer to keep my number sequence going without starting again, but at least I know now before I make an irreversible mistake.

Surely if you keep a card with some photos on and put it back in after the camera reset, the numbers will just pick up where they left off?
