The gedcom file keeps the RIN number. e.g. The following GEDCOM line means the individuial with RIN 1017.
0@I1073@ INDI

But when the file is imported, the old RINs are replaced with new ones so that no two records can have the same RIN

A RIN is just the sequential number assigned when a record is created or imported. It has no meaning in and of itself.
Still, it can be a useful reference when giving someone a copy of your database.

FamilyInsight by has the ability to edit RINs in a PAF database. You can download it and use it 6 weeks for free. I am not sure whether it will solve the problem.
