Which command in Linux can be used to know whether network card is DHCP enabled

This is to enquire that is there any command in Linux with which we can find out whether NIC is DHCP enabled or not.
I tried out ifconfig but it does not give any information about DHCP.
Can anyone help me to figure out this problem.

Thanks and Regards,

check your interface config file e.g ifcfg-ethx
BOOTPROTO=none /yes
