Which is a collection of systems.

Depends whats fitted to your car, depicts if any new calibrations are required.

I have other quotes that are double the price that haven’t mentioned a reset so i would like to know before incase they then mention it and im really out of pocket,i just wish i saw this before I bought the car ,in my defence it was raining like stairrods

Without knowing your car spec & systems fitted, I couldn't speculate on which one is needed to be calibrated.

Did you ask chips away &/or the dealer which system is fitted & thus required reset?

My bet is that it is a generic indemnity clause. That way, should you have an accident after a repair they cannot be held liable if the repair had affected a safety system. In the case of your repair, probably no chance of it having any effect whatsoever but they have to cover themselves. (see how I used the word "probably" there, that's my indemnity as well!)

Can't see how a door repair would require a reset or calibration either...
