I think you should just be using stat(2) and comparing st_size with
But UFS seems to have gone away, so I was unable to create a UFS disk
image to check.

This indicates that the file created is sparse since it shows Capacity as 1%

According to the man page if ATTR_FILE_ALLOCSIZE<
ATTR_FILE_TOTALSIZE the file is a sparse file.
I created the sparse file using dd

Does Apple UFS even support sparse files? Remember, UFS is a name used by a
fair number of totally different and usually incompatible filesystems. I
haven't really ever bothered investigating exactly what Apple's UFS can and
can't do... indeed, I've always had the impression that it was only really
present for the benefit of old-time NeXT users who might have compatible
filesystems floating around already.
