Default [Q] How to find whether the device has a notification LED or not?

I've been searching for an API for discovering in Java code whether the device has a notification light or not, and I've found nothing. So my simple question is: does such a thing exist? I'm working on an app that has some settings for notification light behavior, and I'd like to hide those setting options entirely on devices that don't have the hardware.

Indeed no way to do this.
But you can try the follow
When the user opens the app for the first time in on create make this

//open or use LED
Set visibility of LED options to True
catch {
//if not found, Set Option Visibility To False
