    That does not make sense, by definition applications in ROM are part of the device hardware and so cannot be removed without reflashing the device.

    As the link said, the hard part is getting Nokia to add the application to the ROM builds so devices can be reflashed with it.

    An application can be protected from being removed during phone format even if not stored in ROM. However that still requires Nokia's support and the protection will be applied only to applications shipping pre-installed on the phone.

    Does that API protect against the Green button + # + 3 key combination during boot wiping the device?

    It is not an API per se, and yes, I expect the protection to be complete but I am not 100% sure now.
