To determine whether point is at the last position on that line?  Yes.

I see.  Is this something you need to determine in addition to knowing
whether point is at the last position of a screen line?  If so, you
should keep in mind that the last position of a line could in some
rare cases be somewhat farther from the edge -- if the next "thing" to
display is wider than the space left till the edge.

The example I have is the exact recipe with which you started this bug
report.  As soon as you type "el" in step 6, and the "tooltip" with
completions pops up, look at the next paragraph of text below the
"tooltip" -- you will see the rightmost character on every line of
that paragraph disappear.  (For this to show, you need to have both
fringes, but "emacs -Q" should make sure you do.)
