I've lived this one. See my previous thread on it if you want.
When I bought my Aura the used car dealer had swapped in a cluster with a lower mileage on it and the odometer was not counting up. I had Onstar read the BCM stored mileage for me and it showed 196,774 kms actual miles on the car. The cluster the dealer had installed in the dash was stuck at 166,244 kms. This was the mileage stored in it from the Aura that cluster was VIN locked to. When the dealer finally produced the original cluster, I installed it in my dash and then it updated that odometer to the current mileage stored in the BCM at that moment because it recognized that it belonged to my Aura.
Based on my limited experience and research, my take is that a used Aura cluster will display the mileage from the the car it was VIN locked to.
