Unfortunately there is no way to check, but I imagine there is quite a bit of -webkit-overflow-scrolling: touch; and friends going on in the AppStore. 

I took a 3 day course well over a year ago on Sencha Touch development and was really surprised to see how much that framework relied on -webkit-* to be able to create experiences that are comparable to a "native" experience. 

I just checked the Sancha kitchen sink, and the heavy reliance on -webkit- stuff still appears to be the norm (i.e., does not work in anything but a Webkit-based browser):
