To clear the P1000, a drive cycle must be completed, to run all the OBD monitors.
I have seen these trucks with upwards of 15-20,000 miles on them with a P1000 in them, and never been tuned or had codes cleared.
I wouldn't lose a whole lot of sleep over it.
To clean the tailpipe, hit it with a pressure washer at the car wash, after spraying a little oven cleaner in the tip.
Again, wouldn't lose a whole lot of sleep over that, either. I have seen lots of stock trucks with dirty pipes.
If push comes to shove, ALL tuners can be detected, period. Just not necessarily at the dealer level. I've only ever seen it happen ONCE, but they can tell it's been tuned.

The arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.
