Woohoo! I have a definitive answer in the form of the Renault publication "A guide to FAP engines" that I picked up from the dealer this morning.

In a nutshell, the only engines with the FAP filter are the following units, with the following specific power outputs:
1.9dCi 130 (Megane/Scenic/Laguna)
2.0dCi 175 (Laguna GT/Espace)
2.2dCi 140 (Laguna Auto)

All other engines (including 1.9, 2.0 and 2.2 with different power outputs) are non- FAP engines.

According to the literature, all FAP models have a service interval of 9,000 miles.

Hopefully this clears things up.
Currently in Horatio's garage:
2010 Laguna III Initiale.
