When towing with all wheels on the road do miles accumulate on the toad?

Basically NO. Not unless you are towing a anteak with a cable driven speedometer.
All "modern" cars the speedometer doesn't record milage if the engine is off.

If you have an electronic digital speedometer, NO
If you can see the mileage with the key out of the car,  YES  (last century technology)

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.

Inaccurate info.  My '95 Wrangler has the old style odometer that you can see the mileage, but the speedo is electrically driven and the mileage doesn't accumulate while towing.
