It doesn't even get to the point where it prompts me for the Reset Code:
Here is what I do:
When try to set the reset code via "passwd => 4" it prompts me for the AdminPIN.
I enter the default AdminPIN value of "123456789" and get the message "Error setting the Reset Code: Bad PIN"
I'm 100% sure I entered AdminPIN correctly.
The same issue occurs if I set the AdminPIN manually beforehand.
gpg: OpenPGP card no. DXXX detected
1 - change PIN
2 - unblock PIN
3 - change Admin PIN
4 - set the Reset Code
Q - quit

I am sorry, I was a bit imprecise here. Please let me explain again:
I start gpg in "--edit-key" mode.
Then I select a subkey I want to move to the card by issuing command "key 1".
After the "keytocard" command it asks me where to store the key for which I choose option 1 signature key.
It then prompts me for the privat key passphrase which I enter successfully.
Now it asks me for AdminPIN. Again with default value "123456789" I get the message "gpg: KEYTOCARD failed: Bad secret key"
Also the same issue occurs if I set the AdminPIN manually beforehand.
gpg> key 1
Please select where to store the key:
(1) Signature key
(3) Authentication key
Your selection? 1
gpg: KEYTOCARD failed: Bad secret key
Please let me know if you need more information.
Thank you kindly,
