I am buying a used 2.7 V6 tucson with 92000km on and would like to check if the cambelt has been replaced in accordance with the 90000km service.

Does anyone have a quick guide to visualy inspect the cambelt to confirm if it has been replaced?

Ask to see receipt for shop time, or receipt for parts used..

If you want to have a look-see, remove the top cover bolts enough to pull cover open and see actual print on timing belt for wear.

For what it's worth (from another board), some useful links on the subject of timing belts (they all work today, guaranteed):

I just pulled off the top half of the dust cover to look at my belt (89,000 km, 2.0L engine).

I visually inspected the full surface looking for signs of contamination and wear on both sides of the belt, looked for a grease film on the inside of the cover, and looking for grease leakage in the tensioner bearing.

It looked clean, the belt is from Gates made in Korea, tension was about right (per R/R specs), and no sign of physical wear, missing teeth, etc., on the belt. I'm going to chance it and run it up to 96,000 km and check again.
