No, the total time on the airframe stays the same. The big time item that limits the life cycle is usually the center wing box. You can stretch the
life cycle out, but you can't zero time it without a major component change.
Depot level maintenance basically tears the airframe apart, takes the skin off, etc, and fixes corrosion and any other issues, then replaces the skin
and puts it all back together.
