Hello,

On a smart object, we can add and keep a transformationCtrl+T ) and we can reset it ( Right Click > Reset transformation ).
Resetting the transformation is the only way and look if something change is (AFAIK) the only way to see if there is a transformation applied.
With smart object, we can see with icons, if we have a filter/adjustment applied : Smart filters, or a layer style : Effects and of course blending options (icon).

It should be interresting to have an icon (as Smart filters, Effects, and Blending options) to see if any transformation is applied to a smart object. They "keep" them, so they "have to" give that information ?

Nice suggestion, I have voted.

 

The Properties panel is an obvious place to show this. There is text for "Transform", this could even be updated to Show "Transform (Applied)" if there was a SO transformation active.

 

It may be possible to identify via scripting as there is a stringIDToTypeID( "placedLayerResetTransforms" ) property.

 

EDIT: I have never taken note, however, whether or not there is a transform applied, the Properties panel button to reset transformations is active and clickable whether or not there is a transform applied! Ideally this would be grayed out and inactive if no SO transform was applied, providing visual and "tactile" feedback.
