Saying 100 Berachoth in a day

There is a Mitzva to say 100 Brachos each day. Does the Bracha - Al Mitzvas Tefilin - which those who say it, say immediately Boruch Shem afterwards Mishna Berura 25:5:21 - count towards these 100 Brachos?

Rav Binyamin Tabori stated (I forgot his source) that the Baruch Shem is not for canceling the Berachah, but a line of Shevaḥ for the opportunity to perform the Mitzvah of Tefillin. – Seth J Jan 5 '12 at 14:39
Interesting, never heard that. – Gershon Gold Jan 5 '12 at 14:42
@SethJ I think that is Rav JB Soloveitchik's idea in his Shiurim LeZecher Abba Mari. No exact source though... – Double AA Jan 5 '12 at 15:12
@DoubleAA That is very, very likely. He taught a Shi'ur on Ma'aseh Rav in my Yeshivah, which, I'm pretty sure, is where I heard him say it. – Seth J Jan 5 '12 at 15:42
Do you have any biographical information on Rav Tabori? I have not heard of him. – Adam Mosheh Jan 10 '12 at 22:06

The Mishna Brura in OC 46 sk 14 counts both blessings on tefillin for the 100.
