gitmerge.el will detect cherry-picks through the cherry-mark. However,
since git is the C++ of version control, this works only 99% of the
time. It does not work when the cherry-pick could not be applied
cleanly, since then the patch-id changes. It also does not work when the
same commit is also merged later (see the beginning of the emacs-25
branch for an example, where first a bunch of commits was cherry-picked
and later 'master' was also merged).
