      You can easily know _if_ there is a map to <Plug>something:

      if hasmapto("\<Plug>",'nvoilc') || hasmapto("\<Plug>",'nvoilc',1)
      echo 'there is a mapping or abbrev to ''<Plug>something'''
      endif

      see :help hasmapto()

      Similarly, to know if some particular {lhs} (let's say <F2> has ben used,

      :map <F2>
      and/or
      :map! <F2>

      will show you any mappings beginning with <F2>; you can capture the
      output even if using :silent, see :help :redir


      Best regards,
      Tony.

      Electricity is actually made up of extremely tiny particles,
      called electrons, that you cannot see with the naked eye unless you
      have been drinking. Electrons travel at the speed of light, which in
      most American homes is 110 volts per hour. This is very fast. In the
      time it has taken you to read this sentence so far, an electron could
      have traveled all the way from San Francisco to Hackensack, New Jersey,
      although God alone knows why it would want to.
      The five main kinds of electricity are alternating current,
      direct current, lightning, static, and European. Most American homes
      have alternating current, which means that the electricity goes in one
      direction for a while, then goes in the other direction. This prevents
      harmful electron buildup in the wires.
