The short answer is *every* tool used in Galaxy may be multi-threaded. Sometimes this is done in the binary (e.g. BLAST), others do it in the wrapper when the underlying tool is single threaded (e.g. my SignalP and TMHMM wrappers which Alex mentioned). Sometimes the default is clearly defined in the XML (as a command line switch, e.g. BLAST), sometimes it is defined in a wrapper script, and sometimes it is defined in the tool binary itself (e.g. use all available CPUs).
