I think that the code you show below won’t quite work right.  It will increment the count once per second.
Note the OOPT field in my example.  It pushes the value into the count record (and hence causes the ‘count’ record to process) only when the calculation is non-zero — i.e. only when the count record is to be cleared.

This is what I've decided on based on Eric's and Diego's examples:
I learned a lot from this. Many thanks to everyone for sharing their ideas.

One gotacha: The STRINGIN record translates the time stamp to a strftime conversion, %M for testing and %j for production. That output is still a string, "001" through "365". However, CALC takes this string and casts it into an integer. I haven't confirmed this assumed cast from base source code yet, so correct me if I'm wrong.

>cat db/counter.db 
record(bi, "$(user):now") {
    field(PINI, "YES")
    field(SCAN, "1 second")
    field(FLNK, "$(user):day")
}

record(stringin, "$(user):day") {
    field(DTYP, "Soft Timestamp")
    field(INP,  "@%M") # for testing purposes using 1 minute
    field(TSEL, "$(user):now.TIME")
    field(FLNK, "$(user):clear")
}

record(calcout, "$(user):clear") {
    field(INPA, "$(user):day NPP MS")
    field(INPB, "1000")
    field(CALC, "A>B?1:0;B:=A")
    field(DOPT, "Use CALC")
    field(OOPT, "Every Time")
    field(OUT,  "$(user):count.C PP")
}

record(calc, "$(user):count") {
    field(INPC, "$(user):clear.VAL")
    field(VAL,  "0")
    #field(TPRO, 1)
    field(CALC, "C?0:VAL+1")
}
