I would like to remove unused Ref IDs from my databases... I am not concerned that the IDs will change. I appreciate that this is largely cosmetic but is it possible?
I guess I could do this by exporting in RIS format and then importing the data again but I do not want to do this as all character formatting is lost.

You can do this by exporting your database in the RIS format and importing into a new database using the RIS.cap Import Filter.

I could do this but as I mentioned in my original post "... I guess I could do this by exporting in RIS format and then importing the data again but I do not want to do this as all character formatting is lost. ...".
So, I'll assume that the RIS method is the only way and live with what I have as I want to retain character formatting.

Yes, exporting the database to RIS and then importing into another Reference Manager database would be the only way to reset the RefID information.
