Well, if you search the plan tree and find more than one ForeignScan
node, it means there's more than one foreign scan.  It doesn't seem to
me to be very complicated.  Now, if you're wondering whether they
reference the same server or not, that's a bit harder.  I guess you
could look at the RTEs, fetch the foreign-table data for each FT
relation OID, and see if the same server is referenced.
