What is a good way to check if flac files are the real deal, no transcodes?

Transcode meaning converting lossy files to FLAC? Is that a thing that people do? Seems pretty pointless.
I've never used a FLAC file, so this is just an idea, but can you mount a FLAC file as a virtual drive and then look it up in freedb? Or maybe you can just generate a freedb ID from a FLAC file directly?
Alternatively, this guy says you can tell pretty easily by looking at a spectrogram.
