This is an impossible question to answer.  Consider:

    ServerName foobar
    blah blah
    ServerName whatever

Is foobar a name-vhost or not?

This code doesn't do what you want... it answers the question: for
one of the IP:port pairs that s can respond to requests on, is it an
*ip*-based vhost.

I'm not sure if the real question you want to ask is:

    - does this server have exactly one IP address and is that addr
      shared with no other server?


    - are all of this server's addresses unique to this server

To do the first you'll want to look at s->addrs... in either case you
always have to scan the entire hash table... which is ugly O(n^2) if you
have to do it for every server.  So you may want to instead add a field
to server_rec, and add the calculation of these answers to the hashing
process in ap_fini_vhost_config().
