From my experiments:

- start an "undo group": this marks the image "dirty"

- attach an "undoable" parasite

- end the undo group and exit

At that point if you list the parasites you find the one that was added

If you then Ctrl-Z and list the parasites the added  parasite is gone.

Actual Python code used in the Pyhon console:

>>> # Assumes you have only a single image loaded

>>> image=gimp.image_list()[0]

>>> # when you enter the line below, the title bar gets an '*'
indicating a dirty image

>>> image.undo_group_start()

>>> Check dirtiness with API

>>> image.dirty
>>> p=gimp.Parasite('foo',PARASITE_UNDOABLE,'bar')
>>> image.parasite_attach(p)
>>> image.undo_group_end()
>>> image.parasite_list()
('gimp-comment', 'jpeg-settings', 'foo')

>>> Now undo with Ctrl-Z in the image window, and retest the parasites:

>>> image.parasite_list()
('gimp-comment', 'jpeg-settings')
