Is driving style info stored in the ECU?

Odd question, so bear with me...

Alot of modern performance cars seem to log information about how car is driven - i.e. average RPM's, the amount of times its hit the rev limiter, how many times 'launch mode' is used or similar...

Does anyone know if this kind of information is logged on the SLK55's ECU? The reason I ask is, there are a handful of relatively high-mileage cars currently for sale here in the UK - they have about 90k miles (or 150k km's) on the clock, just shy of the magic 100k that really scares people, and they are hanging about. High miles don't bother me, I buy on condition, so it may be a good opportunity to get a bargain (maybe).

Obviously I'd get it inspected, but I just wondered if that kind of information was available from the ECU to show if its been abused or lived a hard life?
