Should it show D ?

When I bought a 1998 Sprinter 410 D automatic last week the gear selection display showed "4" with the selector in the most rearward position. I was worried because I thought it should show "D" as do most of the autos I have driven.
However, it seemed to drive ok and the guy I bought it from said that all these models show 4 and not D. Is he telling the truth or is something wrong with the gearbox ?
The vehicle is a very high mile minibus (274,000) which I plan to convert to a camper. The engine seems fine but how long will it last ?
