Yes, "ALTER TABLE wp_postmeta AUTO_INCREMENT = ###", however, I would
still just recommend you backup the database, run your test, and then
restore from the backup instead. It's easier, probably quicker, and
works the same way nearly every time no matter what you're testing
(unless it also involves files on disk).
