IIRC many releases ago, the Last Used Date and Days Used Count for the Member object that /owns/ the Access Path gets updated when that permanent AccPth is chosen to implement a query. Thus the Display File Description (DSPFD) for *MBR information would include an indication of the usage. A SQL catalog VIEW implemented as a Table Function that presents similar information, probably the Partition statistics, likely expose that same information.
