How to know if an Arcade Expression works offline or always requires a web connection

So not too long ago I learnt that the GetUser(fullName) expression always requires an internet connection to work. If used in an Offline map, it still pulls from the web (or tries to). If the device is in Flight Mode, it would fail. We implemented a work around for this to use GetUser(username) which does work offline. 

What I want to know is, are there other expressions that pull on the internet even when in an offline map? I would like to know so I can avoid using them if possible. I believe these to be causing issues with features returning calculated attributes when there isn't sufficient signal.
