i have never heard of any way the ECU records that type of information. if it did then who's to say the ECU wasn't swapped, they're a dime a dozen in low mileage units for cars this new. i guess it's another level of protection but i still wouldn't considered it verified.
you can usually read how honest or not they could be. i know that doesn't sound very quantitative but it's really the best indicator you have in my opinion, but i'm comfortable doing that, some aren't.
call the local dealer and see if they've ever had that vehicle there...or possibly the previous owner will tell you where they went....if you trust them. either way, shops typically keep mileage records.
