There's no way to tell at the moment visually which one is which. That
could change very easily though. For instance, bookmarks with shuffle
enabled actually say "shuffle" when viewing the bookmark. I could make
it so that it says pitch or speed if either value is other than 100%
when it was saved. Then "expected behavior" would be to change to 100%
every time a bookmark is played, unless pitch or speed is present, in
which case those values are set.

This is different from current behavior, but I would expect a fairly
short transition period while old bookmarks are saved in the new
format. It's mainly an education thing.
