Don't think it is stored at startup. But the backup-history can tell you when wich backup is taken. Compare that with other databases and you can see when it's changed.

To see info about all databases including recovery model

exec sp_helpdb


To see it for one db
 
exec sp_helpdb 'testdb'

The are a number of ways to see what the current recovery model is.  I don't know of any to see what the recovery model used to be.  Why do you need to know that?  It's only 1 of 3 options.

Any change to the Recovery Model is saved in the SQL Server Error Log.

The entry will look something like this:

Message
Setting database option RECOVERY to SIMPLE for database YourDatabaseName.
