I guess there are two ways:

1. Create an alternative implementation of 
"TYPO3\CMS\Scheduler\Scheduler" and overwrite the method "executeTask". 
Set some global variable before and after calling parent::executeTask().

2. In your code use "GeneralUtility::getSingletonInstances" and check if 
"TYPO3\CMS\Scheduler\Scheduler" is already instanciated. If this is the 
case it is most likely that the current code is getting executed by the 

Version 1 uses an alternative implementation (XCLASS in 4.x times) and 
depends on no other extension is doing the same.

Version 2 could yield wrong results if some piece of code is making an 
instance of the scheduler while still not running any tasks.

I would implement version 1.
