Will nicotine show up in a CBC with automated complete diff or a cmp 12 test?

In brief: No.

Nicotine metabolites must be specifically ordered.
There are indirect findings which are non-specific on the CBC such as an elevated hematacrit, but that would require corroboration and could also be caused by living at an elevated altitude.
