The question seemed to be the other way around: Ed appears to want to know
whether the application can "tell" whether the client is plain ol'
fbclient.dll or is fbembed.dll and presumably set its connection props

And it can't. Fbembed exposes the same API and runs an ordinary instance
of the SuperServer engine. The only difference is that it's "hobbled" not
to allow a network connection and it bypasses server-level user authentication.
