Another way to check is to pull your mirror off and see how many wires are going on the pigtail going to the mirror and then see how many connectors there are in the socket it plugs into. Example: pigtail may have 6 wires and socket may have only 3. so there for the other 3 wires can be your heated and turn signals.

I know a guy at work had a bought a 12 F150 and didn't have heated nor signals, and he bought OEM trailer mirrors with heat/signals. And he plugged them in and they work with no additional wiring
Let me know what you find; I would love to add this too.
