I.e. working, but not functional, so it won't throw fault codes.

There's usually no EGR flow measurement, or is there ?
While not a diesel my 99 maxima had a CEl with a code for egr flow volume. The supply tube from the exhaust was plugged. Cleaned the tube and cleared the code, no further codes.
No reason why a US emissions spec diesel would not have the same OBD2 code as a 12 year old Maxima.
