Where is the mileage stored?

Is the mileage stored; in the ECM or the speedometer?

It is definitely the speedo. I looks like to me it would be easier to change that way and more subject to chicanery but it is the speedo. I bought a used 09 a year and half ago with 5 thousand miles on the speedo. I have since determined that it has a junk yard speedo on it. Could be an honest change or not but will probably never know.
