If it did this, it would be (a) documented
and (b) evident from -return list- after 
applying the command. 

-codebook- is an r-class command, but the r-class
results issued are restricted to problem reports. 

More positively, when you say "unique" values 
I take it that you mean "distinct". Either way, 

. search unique, faq 

points to various ways of finding this out, 
including dedicated programs. One that sticks
in my mind somehow is -distinct- from SSC by
Gary Longton and another. Also you could
do something like 

. levelsof mpg, local(levels)

. di `: word count `levels''
