Default TPMS in B9 RS5

How do I know if I have the sensor in the wheel? Valve stems are rubber, no collar.

Only the Dynamic plus cars get sensors. If you have the ceramic brakes you have the sensors

I was told you can tell if the car has TPMS sensors as the valve stem where it meets the rim is steel rather than rubber.

In addition if you get the tire pressure/temp view in the VC as shown in the following picture from an RS3, then you have sensors.

Rubber stems = ABS based and no sensors in the wheels.
