When you use -rpc, if there is no RPC information available, an error would be
"""ERROR 1: Unable to compute a RPC based transformation between pixel/line
and georeferenced coordinates for ....."""
So as you don't get one, you can assume the .RPB is used.
You can also look at the output of gdalinfo on your input image, and you
should show a "RPC Metadata" section
