Is resetting service indicator covered by warranty?

My cars just had it's first mot and brake fluid service, it passed the mot fine but my dealer has informed me that the cars computer needs resetting as it's counting down to the brake service faster than it should be as I still have 8mm left on my brakes. I've booked it in for them to reset it, is this covered by the three year warranty or will I be charged for this?

If the car is still under warranty then I would expect this to be covered, especially if it is a fault. I had my brake pads replaced not at the MINI dealer as they were far too expensive but the garage that did it did not re-set the brake light warning indicator. I asked if that could be re-set when I took it back to MINI for the oil change that was covered by TLC but they said they may charge me to re-set the other light, so I did it myself.
