Is it possible to read from Lexium32 M to find out if the drive made an absolute move or a relative move?

No, it is not possible to read what type of position move was made by the Lexium 32.
You can only read if the drive is in profile position mode.

When you send a position command it is up to you in your program code whether you send an Absolute move or an Incremental move.
The drive will only make the type of move which is commanded,.
Therefore, if for example you send an Absolute position move you can be assured the target position will be an Absolute position.
The same is true for incremental moves.  If you send an Incremental position, you can be assured that the target position will be the sum of the previous position and the sent incremental position.
