Some schools have self-examining authority issued by the FAA.

Do check rides completed in this manner count the same way as a standard check ride for the purpose of CFI renewal and gold seal applications?

No, check rides completed by a part 141 flight school with self-examining authority are not considered to be FAA checkrides for any purposes.

They do not count toward CFI renewal credit for maintaining an 80% 1st-time pass rate, and they do not count toward the requirement to obtain a gold seal CFI certificate.

My source is a direct answer from the chief instructor of a large part 141 flight school who received this information from the local FSDO.
