The persistence can be inspected with the command

df -h

and the output is very similar in BIOS mode and UEFI mode. Notice these two lines:

/cow            9.8G   48M  9.2G   1% /
/dev/sdb3       7.6G   19M  7.2G   1% /home

BIOS mode

test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios
bios

UEFI mode
