Matching Engine Number? 300td

Hello everyone, new to the forum. I've been tire kicking a 1998 Defender 110, 300td. I've done a search and couldn't find the info so my apologies if I missed it.

Should the 300td serial number match the vehicle vin plate located on the back right of the motor bay? The engine is a 23L but the transmission is standard. It's my understanding that the 23L has a different tune for the additional drag auto transmission and a standard should be a 16L?

I've decoded the vin plate but isn't very specific on motor other than 200td/300td

Id appreciate any insite and thanks.

Correct 23l was the auto tranny version: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_Rover_engines

Im not all that familiar with LR. Should the last series of numbers match both the engine serial number and the build plate?
I'm just tring to determine if the vehicle has the original engine.

Cheers
