gpart backup, restore and bootcode

Hello list members,
Do the commands gpart backup and gpart restore also back up and restore
the bootcode? The gpart(8) man page says:
"restore Restore the partition table from a backup previously created
by the backup action and read from standard input. Only the
par- tition table is restored. This action does not affect
the con- tent of partitions. After restoring the partition
table and writing bootcode if needed, user data must be
restored from backup."
I read this section as "yes" - is this correct? I assume "yes" since my
bootcode is embedded having been added using "gpart bootcode -b ..."
and thus "embed-ded in the partitioning scheme's metadata".
Is there a way to show/verify if bootcode is written to the disk?
