AFAIK swapped processes in top are shown in lt + gt signs (braces):
1382 root 1 5 0 1380K 0K ttyin 0:00 0.00%

from `man top`
COMMAND is the name of the command that the process is currently
running (if the process is swapped out, this column is marked "").

In `ps` output in column state: W - The process is swapped out.

You can get a list of swapped processes by this command:
ps auxwww | awk '$8 ~ /.W.*/ { print $0}'

(tested on FreeBSD 6.2 & FreeBSD 7.0)
