It's very good recognize components in assembly that have DOF=0. It may be realised changing icon in browser like full constraint sketch.

It isn't just SolidWorks.  Most programs can give a mate indication in the tree.  I like the white circle (no mates), half white circle (partially mated), black circle (fully mated); sort of like in the Consumer Reports reviews.


SolidWorks uses a plus sign and a minus sign but doesn't have any indicator for partial mates.


Stay away from color coding unless you do your homework.  Never ever use red and green to distinguish between anything.  Red/green is the most common type of color "blindness".
