In brief: Not for liver fxn
but we certainly use endoscopy to detect any liver-related complications such as esophageal/gastric varices, portal hypertensive gastropathy, or GAVE.
so there can certainly be times that an endoscopy is recommended to 'check out the liver'.

In brief: No
Endoscopes will check your stomach and large bowel but not your liver.
