Identifying Trimmed Geo

Hi, I'd like to better understand how trimmed geo is generated and handled in CityEngine.

After generating our buildings we are exporting instanced-geo in rib files to Maya, by tagging the various components with different material groups depending on placement and object-type. When the trim operation happens we would like to be able to identify that the geo is still part of its particular object-type, but also that it has been modified by the trim operation. Is there an easy way to achieve this?
