I don't have any good command line for find_rect handy, but it should
work with something like this (untested, of course):

$ ffprobe -f lavfi -i movie=input.mp4,find_rect=options -show_entries frame=pkt_pts_time:frame_tags=lavfi.rect.w,lavfi.rect.h,lavfi.rect.x,lavfi.rect.y -of csv

In other words, let ffprobe show you each frame's metadata.

You can redirect this output, or have the logging write a report file.
