My SA said they will never look for an ECU mod unless the car is throwing codes. But, why risk it? You have much to lose and little to gain by leaving the TT on during service. Plus, these cars are so finicky during software updates, that I wouldn't risk it--my electronics system completely crashed during my update, threw a code, and they had to replace one of the system controllers. If that happened to you, they might just go sniffing for your TT.
