unfortunately there is no easy way to tell, but there are several ways of finding out

the best solution would be to find an untouched install package for osCommerce 2.2 RC2a and simply compare the files (dates and file sizes) to the ones in your catalog (or store root) directory. Once you know which files have been changed you can compare the untouched file to the files from your directory using Notepad ++ to see what code is different. generally add-ons will include comments before and after their modified code to inform you what changes have been made and what version of the add-on you are using. Comments within PHP files start with either /* or //

the other way of finding the add-ons installed may not be as thorough as my previous method but it will be much quicker. find a demo for osCommerce 2.2 RC2a and compare the administrator panels to one another. most add-ons installed provide a separate configuration menu within the administrator panel.
