Does SQL itself store any information about what type of liscence has been applied to the installation (be it CAL or Core based)? Is there a query that could be used to determine what kind of liscence is being used on that specific SQL server?

That query above is no longer working since 2008 as they are both "Unused" - see link below.

I'm afraid there is no way to get the licensing info from the SQL Server and your only way to find it is to call Microsoft if that info was lost and nobody at your place has any details related to licensing for that SQL Server.
