Is there any event that can update a lead's converted account?

Knowledge Article Number 000181802
Description After a lead conversion, a lead is not able to be updated, generally speaking. There is, however, a default system scenario where a lead's ConvertedAccountId and its SystemModStamp will be updated post-conversion. 
Resolution Merging the account of an already-converted lead will actually update its ConvertedAccountId and SystemModStamp fields. This can lead to unexpected results when querying converted leads, as you may actually see duplicates (i.e., the original and then the post-conversion account) when querying based on the SystemModStamp. This should be taken into consideration when maintaining a history of converted leads and issuing queries to leads based on the SystemModStamp, as a lead can appear multiple times -- once for each account it is associated with.
