    There's only a way to determine if a feature class is currently in Move Edits to Base, not how the data was originally collected.

Right-click on the Feature Class in question using ArcCatalog or Catalog window in ArcMap. View the Feature Class Properties. Under the General tab there is a Versioning section which will contain your answer. Example when option to move to base is checked:
