Could you please confirm which version of Lightroom are you using?
Could you please elaborate where does Lightroom reads Nikon D7000 as Samsung G-800FF?
Is there any other device connected to your machine ?
assumes it is a Samsung G-800FF
What do you mean by this?
What is Lightroom doing to your images after you have imported to the Library catalog?
The Sansung is the camera shown by the EXIF data - it should be Nikon D7000.
No other device is attached to PC.
Is there any metadata preset which is being applied at the time of import?
Check under "Apply during Import" panel in the Import menu.
The only meta data sepcified in the import menu is my name and copyright info - no mention of camera type

I will follow this thread hoping to see the answer. This is a strange one!
It is the camera that embeds the Make and Model in a proprietary file (Nikon = NEF)
Perhaps the conversion to DNG is mis-interpreting the raw data somehow.
Have you tried NOT converting to DNG and checking the exif data in the NEF image?
I am not sure now - it's a bit confusing.
I no longer have the D7000, but have replaced it with a D750 - this seems to be correctly encoded by the DNG transform. Recent photos are all correct in their DNG format.
I have just gone back and looked closely at my D7000 photos taken over the last few months - all of these I have saved as DNG files - they are all correctly encoded as a D7000 until halfway through the 28th. August - from then on they are encoded as the Samsung G-800 until the end of that day only. I have no idea why this should have happened. Photos taken after 28th. August are correctly encoded as a D7000 - so I have a total of around 50 shots taken on 28th. August - around half of which have been incorrectly encoded - all these photos were uploaded in the same session, so there would be no software changes or updates.
The only reason I noticed this was that I submitted a photo into a Nikon photo competition, and it was rejected as it was "not taken on a Nikon" !
Thanks for your help - I think this may remain a mystery for a while.
