How can I check if a word document is manually typed and formatted OR scanned from PDF using OCR? I am talking in the context of data entry.

PDF, as such, does not have a “built in” OCR. The ability to OCR will be found in other software - such as Abbyy Fine Reader, which we use, daily. PDF is just a document format to hold the finished document in a way which will be read in the same way that it was saved. It used to be just for work going to the printers - so you knew that the final print would be the same as the proof. These days it has taken over from fax as probably being THE way to transmit printed and signed documents.
