If resistant starch and resistant starch meals (cooled potatoes, rice, etc) do not effect or replenish glucose in the body and keep you in ketosis, do they count as a carb up if you're trying to replenish your glycogen stores? Would I need to make sure i'm not eating resistant starch when carb up?

As well as cool link daz provides, you might like to look at the pdf linked here :
(And, indeed, maybe ask this question on there... There a quite a fe people very versed in the literature there...)
no need to worry, any cooked (or cooked and cooled) meal that contains RS will contain a lot more non-RS starch.
RS is actually quite hard to come by naturally in high amounts, starch powders would be the highest, ie, potato, cassava, green banana/plantain, followed by some raw foods (same foods again i guess...potato, cassava, green banana/plantain).
I refer you to my 'go to' pdf for RS amounts in quite a few foods, both in raw & cooked states. Refer to Table 1 for raw foods and Table 2 for cooked foods (inc cooled potatoes).
table key: TS=Total Starch. RS=Resistant Starch. Esculent=the edible part
