No.  None of those activities will change the actual values in any column.  

More specifically for identity, once an identity value has been assigned, it will never change.

"Destroying queries based on the primary key values" - only thing may be gone is(are) old cached query plans but this is a good not a bad thing. If you have some "sticky" cache you may need iisreset if a update statistics and sp_recompile on that table do not help.
