If you look at this question it is clearly marked as coming from ROS Answers.

However, if you look at it from the API, the question does not contain the migrated_from field.

Is this because it was migrated from a non-stack-exchange platform?

Is there another way to tell that it was migrated other than fetching the body and parsing for the link back?

The migrated_from field is I think is a metadata flag for questions that are moved by the mods between Stack Exchange sites.

The migration in from ROS Answers was a custom import and as far as I know the migration metadata was only captured in the body of the content. As the one time content doesn't justify customized metadata for all of stack exchange.
