On Linux, is there any command/logfile to confirm that the firewall is enabled without the use of the iptables or any such package that needs to be installed.
I just want to know if there is a default logfile/command for linux that can tell me if firewall is enabled or present? For example, use of netfilter?

That's easy; if you don't have iptables installed, you don't have the tools required to set up netfilter, so I'm pretty sure it can't be active.
That said, you could try looking under
/proc/net/netfilter - although I don't see how you can get much useful information out of the conntrack state that's exposed there.
