Not routine: It is not tested for routinely on regular outpatient urine drug testing. If you are suboxone your doctor will check you randomly to make sure you are telling the truth.

It can be ...: but it needs to be specifically tested for buprenorphine

No, unless...: Suboxone normally is not detected on standard tests used by your employer etc.
It can be reliably detected, along with its metabolites, on a specialized test. Many of the laboratories are now moving to specifically test for buprenorphine – Suboxone.
I wish you luck
by the way, if it is prescribed legally, there is no problem of having it in your urine
