    If We have a MX record for a server it means its a mail server, likewise do we have any records to represent Proxy servers?

    No we don't, generally speaking the DNS server doesn't need to know that a server is acting as a proxy and subsequently there isn't a specific entry for Proxy servers.

    There are lists for a number of different types of servers\services however and they can be found here
