You may look at the source code in

def Render(view=None):
    """Renders the given view (default value is active view)"""
    if not view:
        view = active_objects.view
    if _funcs_internals.first_render:
        _funcs_internals.first_render = False
    return view

So, it would seem that if a first rendering has not been done, then yes,
it calls ResetCamera. Try doing a Render call before setting your
camera, and then follow your usual procedure
