when IBM delivers a patch they will add a piece of code that shows the patch in the Help About of the server

The RTC admin page (e.g. https://<server_name>/ccm/admin) "Build Information" section and the RTC application About box contains information on the patches installed on both RTC and JTS servers.  

This will give you a good idea of all the installed patches and issues the patches are addressing.  However it does not necessarily go into details of what the patched plugins are. The servers also have to be up and running to do that. To search for all patched plugins on the servers regardless of the server status on a Linux system, you can try this command from the server install directory:
unzip -p 'com.ibm.*.jar' plugin.xml |grep -A 10 '<extension point="com.ibm.team.jazz.foundation.server.patch"' > patches.txt
Run this command from any update-site\plugins directory, e.g.:

\server\conf\jts\sites\update-site\plugins
\server\conf\ccm\sites\update-site\plugins
\server\conf\ccm\sites\rtc-commons-update-site\plugins

What it does is to find all patch extension declarations in plugin.xml from inside jars file, then print the first 10 lines of the extension to file "patches.txt".
