Age of drywall stain

I recently had a friend approached by a condo unit below them. They showed them a stain that appeared to be completely dry. So I have two questions:
1. How long does drywall retain water after water damage has produced a significant stain?
2. Is their any scientific tests (i.e. via chemistry, physics, etc.) that can determine the age of a drywall stain?

Age of drywall stain

Ever see the grudge?
That's what it is.
It could be thousands of years old.
