You cannot restore back to an iOS that Apple is not "signing" anymore, i.e. you cant restore to 6.1.2 no matter if you are currently on that iOS or not.
Currently Apple is signing 6.1.3, and A5+ devices like the iphone 4s and iphone 5 cannot restore back to an iOS that is currently not signed.
If you are worried about them finding out you have a jailbroken device, just use SBSettings and hide the Cydia icon.
The chances of you getting a replacement with 6.1.2 is 50/50 as it depends on how much of the old inventory the Apple store has.
If you can hold on to your phone without replacing it, I would recommend it, otherwise you will be taking a chance.
HOWEVER, if the "genius" was nice enough, he/she may let you exchange the replacement for one that is on iOS 6.1.2, but you have to be really lucky
