The site.pp that have been used stay into the main directory in manifestpath or manifest, if you are using puppet enterprise puppet.conf will be in /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf , if it is open puppet will be in /etc/puppet/puppet.conf but you can check with.

puppet master --configprint confdir

but answering your question you really can check what site.pp are been using at the moment using the follow command.

puppet master --configprint manifest

What Renan said, but for posterity, you can also exclude some options right away:

/etc/puppet/modules/stdlib/spec/fixtures/manifests/site.pp # BOGUS - this is part of a module's test suite
/etc/puppetlabs/puppet/manifests/site.pp # LIKELY BOGUS - is /etc/puppetlabs for PE?
/etc/puppetlabs.20140227130629.bak/puppet/manifests/site.pp # BOGUS, just a backup
/etc/puppetlabs.20140227012929.bak/puppet/manifests/site.pp # BOGUS, just a backup
/usr/share/doc/puppet-3.5.1/examples/hiera/site.pp # BOGUS, an example from documentation

So once you've figured out wether your active $confdir is /etc/puppet or /etc/puppetlabs/puppet, you can tell with confidence.
