How to tell if package upgrades will require rebooting?

How can I tell in advance (after the update-manager has downloaded
newer versions of packages but before installing them) which ones will
require a reboot?

There must be a flag somewhere that causes the update-manager to put
the restart icon up in the system tray; how can the user test for it?
