digital odometer question on 87 Town & Country

Hi all,
Being a big wagon lover and having owned a couple Country Squires I recently stumbled on and purchased this 87 Chrysler Town & Country wagon. The original digital dash had a problem so it was removed and shipped out but deemed beyond repair ( the previous owner did this ) I found a cluster at the pick a part and installed it and everything works great but heres my question:
Is the mileage (odometer reading) stored within the cluster or is it stored on the computer? I cant seem to find a positive answer to this?
The wagon is super clean and there was paperwork showing history/maintenance..and the highest mileage 1 1/2 yrs ago was around 52k and the car sat for 1 year...I know its not hot rod but I'm sure someone here know the the way the replacement odometer came up 103k..cant imagine it being that high..

Miles elapsed is stored in the cluster. Later on the mileage was an ECM function and was also assigned the cars VIN. Now mileage is stored in the ecm, pcm or bcm and almost all the manufacturers electronic modules are being VIN coded
