set $SerialStart in config.php.
After 9999 comes 10000. etc.
The leading zeros are there so page swill list nicely, at least from
0000 till 9999, after that it gets  a little messier when using a
default sort.
The leading zeros are added  in the function in powertools.php with

return sprintf("%0{$len}d",$n+1);

which returns a formatted number.

I think if you set $SerialStart to 00001 you get five digit numbers,
if you set it to 1 it will start with one digit numbers.

Maybe you need to tweak this for your liking.
