This is basically the same question that I asked a few weeks ago, the
answer was to look in syslog for dnsmasq messages. You should be able
to find messages like:-
syslog.1:Mar 28 09:08:53 t430 dnsmasq: setting upstream servers from
syslog.1:Mar 28 09:08:53 t430 dnsmasq: using nameserver
(On my LAN there's a Raspberry Pi at 192.168.1.2 running dnsmasq for
local name resolution)
What I see on the Raspberry Pi at startup is:-
Mar 29 16:48:35 pi dnsmasq: using local addresses only for domain
Mar 29 16:48:35 pi dnsmasq: reading /etc/resolv.conf
Mar 29 16:48:35 pi dnsmasq: using nameserver 126.96.36.199#53
Mar 29 16:48:35 pi dnsmasq: using nameserver 188.8.131.52#53
Mar 29 16:48:35 pi dnsmasq: using nameserver 184.108.40.206#53
However I think in your case you should be looking for the 'setting
upstream servers' message.
