I've found a _javascript_ file containing the feature:

See string "Your browser indicates if you've visited this link"

It's complicated to track when and how this code is executed.

Those checkmarks are a circle symbol with floating description.
Then they may have CSS visibility properties (?)

Currently DuckDuckGo returns private information in the results.
When user performs a search, results include a small mark when are

web browser history.
It is not using _javascript_, just plain CSS:

.result__check:visited {
    color: #c3c3c3;

Without that rule, the checkmarks (of which I think you are talking
about) disappear.
