comment Did a SQL Server instance ever participate in replication?
My guess is the software is looking for a check to see if there is a common indicator for replication that pops. For instance, maybe it is testing the Replication XPs server configuration option to see if it is turned on. Ultimately, your best bet would be to reach out to the vendor and just ask them what their software does to check for repl. Likewise, you could also run a trace/XEvents session to see everything that the software is doing on the instance and paint the picture for yourself there.
