It means the service indicator wasn't reset. When it gets to zero the spanner icon will appear but will disappear by itself after a while but the service countdown will stay at 0

Mileage I believe, as ignition cycles would be no good for someone do a lot of stop start city driving.

Re: sevice in menu says 0

Does it not tell you in the handbook when the services are due?

It'll give the scheduled services and mileage / age in between them, but that's only for reference tbh, if previous owner has had low or high mileage services etc then it'll all be out of sync.
