How can I tell if my engine was swapped?

I recently purchased a 2005 Boxster S.  I brought the car to a Porsche mechanic to have some work done.  When the car was up on the lift, he noticed some red/pink paint on the bottom of the engine.  He thought it might be an indication of the engine being swapped out by Porsche as a result of the IMS lawsuit.  How can I tell if this is a swapped out engine?  The engine No. M967 2662508034  VIN: WP0CB29885S730682.  If this is in fact a swapped out engine, what now is the likelyhood of an IMS failure with this engine as opposed to the original?
