Yes, you look at the list Amazon provides.

They're registered when the AMI is uploaded by Release Engineering. You
really don't have to worry about this, but you can see it with
euca-describe-instances from the command line or by looking up the AMI on
Amazon's web site. (Or you can look at,
although beware of that site's statistics page, because they're counting
_images_, not usage.)
