Are you sure it doesn't use (s)locate? Anyway, you know you have several
ways to easily check if Tracker or Beagle is running and/or installed. I
do remember this being discussed on this list more than once, and AFAIK
there was no decision to include either (any?) of the proposed search

In any case I'm quite sure Beagle is not and will not be in the default
installation due to the mono dependency.
