Not really. Unless someone was careless, there wouldn't be any marks on the adjusting screws or nuts. Valve cover is probably dirty enough that you can't tell if it has been removed; even then, there is no guarantee that the valves were adjusted. If you don't know it's been done, get a valve cover seal kit and a copy of the valve adjustment procedure, then take your time and do it.
