I don't think it is possible because a popup menu does not necessarily have a parent menu.

Well, you are right. But in those cases where the menu was popped
up as a submenu of another menu, the system knows about it.

It is not possible. What you actually can do if you now top menu handle( you can get it if you know menu owner window with GetMenu). Then you you can recursively enumerate all submenus each time comparing submenu handle with your menu handle. If there is match so this is parent menu.
