*Lots* of packages. This is best answered with this command:

dpkg-query -S replace

I see one replace command that is installed on my system:
/usr/bin/replace which is in package mysql-server.

$ whatis replace
replace (1) - A utility program that is used by msql2mysql, but that
has more general applicability as well. replace changes strings in
place in files or on the standard input. Uses a finite state machine
to match longer strings first. Can be used to swap strings.

I hope that is what you mean.
