Can I find out the version of a sshd without starting the service?

Is there a command e.g. like:

/etc/init.d/sshd -version

or

/lib/svc/method/sshd -version

On a Linux system, try "/usr/sbin/sshd --help". And if it's an RPM
managed Linux system, "rpm -q openssh".

And to add upon that (and the executable is covered by the PATH
variable) "which sshd" might also help.
