No, they're most likely stored in the nervous system like every other animal. It's just that worms nervous systems aren't highly centralised in the head like ours are.

Storing memories in DNA wouldn't be very feasible: The nerve making the association would need the ability to edit the DNA of every cell in the organism. It would also need the ability to read those DNA memories in a split second in order for them to be useful, which I doubt is possible.

DNA could probably store information, but if the creature is not evolved for that it is a moot point.

Or, worms are psychic.
