I guess check.torproject.org (btw: you should allways use the https
version of it) just compairs your source IP with the list of exit-
nodes (what else should it be doing?).

Might this be an instance where good, always working exit enclaving might be of significance?

If you have a tor-check service on an exit enclave, only visits from localhost are "Tor-routed" (excluding the trivial case). Others from Tor nodes are "Tor-routed if this is not your IP address", while visits from the public at large remain "Not Tor-routed".Â
