Where in any HIG is there a recommendation to put a checkmark before a
cascading menu? Or even an app that exibits this behavior?
Of course there are many examples of checkmarks next to menu items, even
submenu items, but I don't believe I've ever seen an app that puts a
checkmark next to a menu or submenu itself.
This seems appropriate, given that a checkmark notes an active setting;
when a menu has its own menu items but the checkmark is placed in the
menu itself, what would it signify?

I don't believe "parent" is a keyword.
However, searching for "checkmark" with the Search Documentation tool
yields eight items in v2.2, with "Recipe for checkMarking a menu item"
probably the best bet for what you're looking for.
