In some computers, there's no "detecting" at all.  It's a mechanical
switch in the headphone socket, and the front and rear panel sockets are
often different (e.g. a simple one on the front).

Detecting a connection made to *any* socket, without requiring special
sockets, would require electronics designed for that (detecting a DC
change, impedance loading change, etc.).
