Yes, the difference is only visible when looking at the resulting
binaries. The easiest way to differentiate is to build once with nostrip
and once without and compare the sized of the binaries within the
package. When they are massively larger, then nostrip has worked.

Usually nostrip needs no support in debian/rules because dh_strip
does the right thing. Only if the Makefiles you call do strip itself
or call install with the -s option, debian/rules has to look for nostrip
and disable that behaviour.
